Bi-Weekly – email update 10/8/2020

Here is a quick update regarding matters that have come up since our last email (26th July), and information that has been sent through to us from Council.

Update since last email

  • Proposed motel and apartments at Moona St and petition link
    • the Voice and a more general Shoalhaven group, Our Future Shoalhaven, have been working towards either the rejection or modification of DA20/1453 at Moona Creek. Our Future Shoalhaven has a petition asking that Council reject the DA. Please sign and share if you think the proposal is an inappropriate development for this site.
      The petition link can be found here.
    • The Voice asked Council for a community briefing on the Moona St development proposal because of the considerable community concern. Unfortunately this isn’t possible as they are not holding large resident briefing meetings for DAs due to COVID. The full response is here.
  • A member of the Voice noticed a possible Midden in the soil profile of work being done at the pub site. As we hadn’t heard about this before we notified the Publican, SCC and the Jerrinja Local Aboriginal Land Council. The matter was referred to the SCC’s Compliance Unit, and Heritage NSW. The site has been taped off.
  • Council is looking for people to join two committees, please consider being part of one of these:
    • Coastal Management Program Advisory Committees – The Committees provide a forum to contribute ideas, professional expertise, experience, and local knowledge to assist Council in formulating and implementing the Coastal Management Plans. Applications close 14 August. More information here.
    • Floodplain Risk Management Committees – provide a forum to contribute ideas, professional expertise, experience, and local knowledge to assist Council in formulating and implementing a Floodplain Risk Management Plan. Applications close 14 August. More information here.
