VIDEO: WIN News Illawarra - republished here under Fair Dealing for the purpose of news in regards to the comments and footage of community calls for a design re-think by some local campaigners. While many in the community may have thought the Public Forum meeting held last Saturday in Batemans Bay was about "The Bridge" and its design the issues raised in that meeting were around the ancillary concerns of traffic flow, pedestrian access, boating access and the financial impact to the Batemans Bay CBD. Over coming weeks The Beagle will be focusing on each of these issues that sit squarely with the local Council who will inherit the impacts, ownership, maintenance, renewal and consequences of any poor design. As each issue is raised Council will be asked to provide comment.
