DSC wants feedback on fish­ing spot

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

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 in­quiries@dou­glas.qld.gov.au.”

Com­ments are re­quested by Fe­bru­ary 28.
