Tablelands Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Bec Singh

OP­PO­NENTS of the KURWorld devel­op­ment near Ku­randa have de­manded more trans­parency from Ma­reeba Shire Coun­cil as they ramp up their fight against the re­sort.

Concerned res­i­dents from Ku­randa and sur­round­ing ar­eas handed over a signed pe­ti­tion to the coun­cil on Wed­nes­day which asks coun­cil to with­draw the del­e­ga­tion au­thor­ity of coun­cil CEO Peter Franks.

Kur-Alert Inc pres­i­dent Steven Nowakowski handed over about 300 sig­na­tures.

Mr Nowakowski said res­i­dents were concerned about the Barn­well prop­erty as it was a con­tro­ver­sial is­sue.

He said the pe­ti­tion­ers wanted to be kept in­formed of coun­cil de­ci­sions on the re­sort and wanted their voices heard.

“The de­ci­sions for the prop­erty should have gone to full coun­cil,” he said.

“As a re­sult res­i­dents were not con­sulted.”
