Regional Integrated Emergency Services Precinct for Moruya needs careful thought

The Beagle Editor,

The recent bush fire inquiry identified many matters that need to be dealt with  and as a result came up with many recommendations, as those sorts of inquiry’s do, to the state government.  Councillor Innes, in a media release last week, correctly raised concerns about who should pay for the eventual implementation of the recommendations, when and if they are actually enacted or legislated for actions, new rules or guidelines. Councillor Innes seemed to be very concerned about ‘who should pay’ if a new Regional Integrated Emergency Services Precinct is ever developed in the Moruya area. The preferred site is understood to be in Moruya, just a bit South of South Heads Road Moruya on the Princes Highway. The old fuel depot.

Councillor Innes and all the present lot of Councillors should be lobbying the Member for Bega, the Hon Andrew Constance, that the State Government to forward plan and allocate any funds required for a new Regional Integrated Emergency Services Precinct in the Eurobodalla Shire . It’s a State Government funding matter, not that of our Local Council and the areas residents and ratepayers. The consideration of yet another NSW State funded project for the Moruya area will need to see careful Town Planning decisions made to ensure that the proposed Eurobodalla Regional Hospital, the Moruya by-pass and the now proposed Regional Integrated Emergency Services Precinct meld seamlessly with the long term urban planning of Moruya, assuming there is any long term town planning in place.
