Time for the State Government to be open, truthful and accountable in regards to coastal planning

The Beagle Editor

Over recent years at least the last 30 or so there’s been much community discussion in the shire about Coastal Development in relation to the Global Warming and Hypothetical Sea Level Rise events as a result of Sea Storm Surges Generally. Estimates of land wave run up were generated by computer modelling if a particular imagined best guess Sea Storm occurred.

100 year river floods were also calculated meeting with the best guess high tide levels at the same time. The hypothetical estimates also estimated areas in the Eurobodalla Shire that would be severely impacted by the hypothetical flood estimates. The NSW Government was part of the process attempting to develop future land use policy’s or rules and regulations that would eventually become part of the State Governments Legislated building and development controls. The current disquiet about development conditions and restrictions is occurring because the NSW State Governments OE& H requires it. The NSW State Government Politicians through delegated authority have to date supported the process including any development controls that may be in place now and potentially in the future. All those who are unhappy with what’s occurred to date really need to take the issues of development controls up with the NSW State Government in the first instance with the Local Member our voice in Government. Don’t stop there though.... the Premier and several other NSW Government Ministers need to be involved, perhaps even attending public meetings in the shire to properly explain what the State Government is doing and planning to do in relation to development controls, that are likely to impact on local economy's in various ways .
