ONE YEAR AGO...

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

IN THIS edi­tion one year ago to­day, a newly formed “Fight for Air­lie” group called on Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil to stick to the zones and build­ing heights of the 2009 town plan or wait for the 2016 elec­tion.

At the time coun­cil pro­posed build­ing height changes that would see build­ings as high as four, eight and 12 storeys in parts of Air­lie Beach.

Fight for Air­lie spokesper­son Cor­rie Gard­ner said the group be­lieved coun­cil had failed to in­form the com­mu­nity in a timely man­ner about the pro­posed changes and felt there has been in­suf­fi­cient com­mu­nity en­gage­ment.

In other news, the Proser­pine Lions Rodeo for Sui­cide Preven­tion was ready­ing for its Whit­sun­day de­but and the Mayor’s Charity Mas­quer­ade Ball an­nounced they’d raised more than $16,700 for the Black Dog In­sti­tute.
