The petition, to be hand delivered to Deputy Mayor Anthony Mayne at 11 am on Mon 13th Aug 2018 on site at the Kyla Grazing Lots seeks Council’s iron-clad public commitment to PROTECT AND PRESERVE the Tuross Head community’s beloved HERITAGE GRAZING LANDS. The community has shown strong support with organisers rallying Council's attention via a very robust community meeting with Deputy Mayor Anthony Mayne clearly listening to concerns and learning of the litany of issues that have left the Tuross Head community with a very definite distrust of Eurobodalla Council. "The Kyla Grazing Lots are an iconic tourism attraction celebrated for its magnificent and frequently photographed views. ESC Planning Director’s very recent public statement (Moruya Examiner) that “the present Council had no plans to subdivide the land, but he couldn’t speak for future councils” clearly gives absolutely no certainty to the Community at all. Can anyone blame the Community for being alarmed, given Council’s history eg “Tuscany in the South” etc? According to the hundreds who have already signed the petition they have every right to be. Following the recent admission by the Mayor that she personally combed the Broulee community's petition of 600 signatures to find duplications or foreigners a comment was laughingly commented on around the bubbler (The Tuross Post Office signboard). "It will take the Mayor several hours to comb through the signatures in this bundle looking for someone who might have signed twice or come from out of town. I used a different name and address and coloured pen to fool her.. hahaha . nah, didn't really" "Presenting the petition to Mayne rips away any chance for her to berate us from her high horse with one of her long winded spiels that she dishes out to anyone who dares to question her" "She sent two staff into the Bear Pit to face us. They had no idea. The Deputy saved them. Where was the Mayor or the Director of Planning - hiding?"
