Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

Speak­ing as a Port Dou­glas res­i­dent of over 35 years, I be­lieve this re­tire­ment vil­lage de­vel­op­ment is sorely needed.

Much as I would like to think that I can man­age and main­tain my prop­erty and do all the other mil­lion and one things one has to do, re­al­ity says that I might strug­gle a bit and have to con­sider an al­ter­na­tive life­style such as this. I don’t want to go to Cairns or Moss­man. I want to be in Port Dou­glas.

Now this de­vel­op­ment won’t ap­pear overnight, so I would urge all like-minded per­sons to ques­tion their coun­cil­lors (whether in­cum­bent or pro­posed) and get their views and voice their opin­ion and en­dorse this ur­gently needed fa­cil­ity.

Barry Crock­ford, Craiglie

Work­ers be­gin dis­man­tling the Old Mow­bray Bridge, south of Port Dou­glas, af­ter a re­port by an en­gi­neer deemed the wooden struc­ture too un­safe.
