A rallying call to halt developers

COFFS Harbour residents are being urged to say 'no' to the proposed Moonee Waters development today.

The Moonee Waters development, a proposed residential development of 300 houses in the South Moonee Forest, has been blasted by the Regional Alliance for Sustainable Planning (RASP), who says the area is the single most biodiverse and ecologically significant private property along the Coffs Coast.

RASP is calling for all concerned residents to attend today's rally to support their call for the ecological sanctuary.

"The South Moonee Forest is the single most environmentally significant landholding on the Coffs Coast, residential and tourist developments are completely incompatible with these extraordinarily high conservation values," RASP spokesperson, Mark Graham, said.

The rally intends to give the Minister for Planning, Frank Sartor, a very clear picture of what RASP thinks of the development.

Commencing at 10am at the eastern end of Moonee Beach Reserve, attendees will walk along the coast to Green Bluff Headland, where they will form a giant 'no'.

They will then return to Moonee Beach Reserve for a picnic.
