Coo-eeEE call to young
PROPERTY rights and the right of use of land will be the topic of a Coffs Harbour meeting organised by the Coo-eeEE Property Rights Association at 7pm on April 19 at the C.ex Club in Vernon Street.
On March 12, the NSW State Government introduced legislation to allow the State Government to acquire private property for ‘public benefit’.
The proposed legislation, which extends current State Government powers of property resumption, is already causing concern in Sydney and is adding to rural resentment about the constraints on rural landholders imposed by the Native Vegetation Act 2003.
CPA spokeswoman Jeanette Jones said they were inviting members of the public living within the boundaries of Coffs Harbour especially under 45s, the Y and X generation to attend.
“It has been mentioned ‘no-one listens to us’ and I’m sure many have valid contributions to make,” Mrs Jones said.
“ Coo-eeEE adopted its name in respect and memory of the dozen or so young men who walked from Gilgandra to Sydney in 1915 to enlist in the Australian Army to fight in WW1,” she said.
“Coo-eeEE represents Property Rights and Right of Use of Land – and is not an alternative to the State NSW Farmers Association, whom we prefer to work with.”
Speakers will include Jeanette and Bob Jones, Bob Spanswick (Sydney) and Neil Lunney (Noosa QLD). They will speak about the Lima Declaration; Agenda 21 and the Native Vegetation Act 2003.
A Coo-eeEE Rally will also be held at Macksville Ex-Services Club at 7pm on April 18.
