Important news on Moonee

A COMMUNITY information and feedback session on the proposed development of South Moonee Forest has been set for next weekend.

Representatives from the Moonee Waters project will be at the Pacific Bay Resort between 11am and 3pm on Saturday, February 23.

The information session has been organised in response to a protest against the project that saw 300 residents spell out a human 'NO' on Green Bluff earlier this month.

The Moonee Waters project proposes to build 300 residential homes on 102 hectares of privately owned land that local ecologists have called 'the single most significant environmental area on the Coffs Coast'.

Regional Alliance for Sustainable Planning (RASP) spokesperson, Mark Graham, has urged all Moonee residents to attend the session to show how the community feels about the proposal.

Moonee Waters spokesperson, Peter Biasotto, said the developers will use the information session to demonstrate how they are addressing concerns raised by the community.

"In an 'open house' format, the community will have the opportunity to view plan information, speak to members of the project team and provide feedback on the proposal," Mr Biasotto said.

A spokesperson for the Department of Planning said one of the benefits of the major projects assessment system is that developers are required to respond to key issues raised in submissions.
