DSC wants feedback on fishing spot
DOUGLAS Shire Council wants to know what you think the new Mowbray fishing platform should look like.
It is planning a meeting on site soon, with Mayor Julia Leu, so that interested locals can express their opinions on what would make a good fishing platform for the site.
The popular fishing spot used to be served by the remnant bridge over the Mowbray, which was torn done last year due to safety concerns for the rotting structure.
Many people also used to drop by to look for crocodiles.
When it removed the old structure, Council made a commitment to look at options for a new platform, and to involve the community in the design process.
The preliminary concept includes bollards about where the barricades are now to prevent vehicle access, and a landscaped walking track created between the bollards and the platform.
Mayor Leu is inviting people who would like to share their ideas to contact Council and explained there would also be an opportunity for those who made an appointment before 14 February to meet officers on site.
“For anyone interested in meeting officers on site, please email or call Council to speak to one of the project team, or alternatively, feedback may be emailed to email@example.com.”
Comments are requested by February 28.
