Hi Terry, John, Roger, Tim and Tim, Brad, Richy, Marnie, Brian, Allan, Dave, and Darryn.
I thought I would resend this letter of support we got from the councils CEO to you all. This letter is confirmation that council is right behind us with support for our lease in conjunction with a development application.
We have now put in our application to the state as the owners of the land for their permission to enter into a development application with Council .Brad is at present negotiating with Council and the State to clinch the deal so we can begin our development application. I would personally like to thank Brad for his professional support with this stage of the application.
To date all meetings with State and Council has been extremely supportive and helpful. We are really happy with this support and have taken every step to convey our appreciation to all staff for Their support. We also continually thank the councillors for their support especially Crs Dwyer and Cox. The State members Mark and Jarrod too have given us letters of support which we are very appreciative.
A big thanks also to Brian Warner for his help in obtaining a conditional aboriginal cultural heritage clearance for the project to proceed.
Thanks to Richy for all the time he has given to draw and prepare the wonderful plans we have and Roger and Marnie for their professional help and support to assist Richy with the planning concept.
We need to thank Tim Hindley for his initial vision for the project and the stepping plates collected on the way.
Big thanks to Jenny Faddy and Noni Baxter for preparing and submitting our funding application to Sport and Rec.
Thanks also to all the other members of the steering committee for their help and guidance.
BUT a really big thanks to Terry and John for their behind the scenes guidance and support during every stage of the way and the many meetings we attended to ensure no stone was unturned.
Thanks to all other members of the public who have encouraged us to keep going and have shown us their support and directions.
Now comes the stage where we need all hands on deck as the development application requires community consultation and as it is impact assessed a sign will be placed at the site so the public can express their opinions on the proposal. We hope the application to Council will be submitted by the end of February and the consultation process starts in early March.
This is when we will need personal, individual letters of support to ensure we have the best advantage for council to hopefully approve the proposal.
We will call a meeting at the appropriate time to ensure we develop the very best planned community consultation process.
Please pass this positive information on as we have our eyes now on the prize so we don’t want to drop the ball at this vital stage.
Happy New year to all
Don Smith on behalf of the steering committee.
