Voice meeting with Mayor, 15th August; flood presentation

Monday 15th August Meeting We’ve missed our normal meeting but have a special meeting planned for the 15th August where the Mayor and 3 senior staff will be in attendance. (please feel free  to wear a mask). We sought your thoughts on what to cover and using those and the topics that keep re-emerging we are asking Council to outline: What is planned to be done to address this matter When is that planned to be done Who will be responsible How will it be done (and how can the community contribute). The topics we are asking them to cover are:
  1. 59 Owen St
  1. Traffic and parking in Huskisson and Woollamia
  1. The approval of DAs that erode the character of Huskisson
  1. Protecting the heritage values of the old Anglican church (on Hawke St)
  1. Traffic issues on Woollamia Rd
  1. Reserve topic: Urban forest / street tree plan
  1. Reserve topic: communication – what is the value of CCBs? Where do they sit in the communication process and are they a first port of call?
If attendees have additional matters they would like addressed we’ll ask staff to take these away and provide a written response.  We have tried to make this meeting quite structured in order to get the most input from Council in a limited time.  We recognise that all these matters are quite complex, but we’d like to hear about the way forward on these. Updates since last meeting
  • As we will have missed our normal meeting a summary of correspondence is attached for your information.
  • A financial report will be circulated in the next email update.
  • Council flood planners will be giving an online presentation on flood management of Currambene Creek and Woollamia. This presentation will likely be followed by an on-site meeting. The presentation will provide an overview of Council flood planning in the context of marine park requirements, DA management, flood modelling and the development of a Currambene Creek Coastal Management Plan (hope we’ve interpreted the latter correctly). If you’re interested in attending this can you reply to this email answering the below questions: Preferred time: Thursday 25th Aug 12 to 1pm; OR Monday 29th Aug 4 to 5pm; OR Tuesday 30th Aug 4 to 5pm. Are you interested in having SES and/or police attend the presentation or the on-site meeting? Yes OR No
