'Save Wooli' petition is misguided
LABELLING a ‘Save Wooli’ campaign and online petition by GetUp! as ‘misguided’, Greens Clarence candidate Janet Cavanaugh has come out in support of Clarence Valley Council’s planned retreat proposal for Wooli.
The environmental scientist said the proposal had also been endorsed by the council’s climate change advisory committee and local environment groups.
“I am usually supportive of the progressive stance taken by GetUp! but I’m concerned by the level of misinformation being used to support this campaign,” she said.
“The proposal put forward by council is to relocate the southern residents to another area within Wooli.
“There is no plan to ‘abandon’ the village as claimed in the campaign.”
