A set agenda in Jetty Crown land plans

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

I AT­TENDED the in­for­ma­tion ses­sion and a work­shop as part of the “in­de­pen­dent” and “trans­par­ent” Coffs op­por­tu­nity – com­mu­nity and stake­hold­ers con­sul­ta­tion con­ducted by GDH.

In both fo­rums the pub­lic opin­ion was over­whelm­ingly and un­am­bigu­ously to ex­clude res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment east of the rail­way line.

Am I cyn­i­cal to sus­pect GDH had an agenda pre­set by our State Gov­ern­ment as to the out­comes they re­quired?

The only pos­si­ble ex­pla­na­tion of the “Plan re­leased on Coffs com­mu­nity’s sug­ges­tions” Ad­vo­cate, Oc­to­ber 27, glow­ingly sup­ported by our State mem­ber, is that the email re­sponses vastly dif­fered from the in­for­ma­tion ses­sions, the work­shops and the opin­ion of the many lo­cals I have dis­cussed the mat­ter with.

Hence I re­quest GDH, in true trans­parency, gives pub­lic ac­cess to these emails. Anna Sin­clair
