Project key to grow­ing econ­omy

NewsMail - - YOUR SAY - ADAM WRAT­TEN Editor

THE devel­op­ers be­hind a con­tro­ver­sial high-rise de­vel­op­ment pro­posed at Bar­gara have re­sponded to a Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil re­quest for more in­for­ma­tion.

As is their right, it looks like the re­sponse is light on de­tail about any changes to the pro­posed nine-storey height.

This is a big project for the re­gion and there would be plenty of eyes watching to see what the out­come is. If it was to go ahead, it would send a clear mes­sage that Bundy is open for busi­ness.

Since the ap­pli­ca­tion was first lodged there has been strong com­mu­nity in­ter­est, with many di­vided about the best way for­ward.

While I can ap­pre­ci­ate the ar­gu­ments on both sides, I would like to see the green light given as the ben­e­fits it would bring and the po­ten­tial for more to come down the track would be pos­i­tive for the re­gion. It is now in the hands of our com­mu­nity lead­ers to de­ter­mine what hap­pens.

Whichever way they go, not every­one will be happy.
