RATEPAYERS in Coffs Harbour are being sold out by councillors who appear to care little about the people they are supposed to represent.
In recent years my property and several others in Moonee Beach were identified as being under threat by inundation.
I and others who own the properties affected would expect careful consideration be given to our concerns with regards towards flooding by proposed development.
Council however find it unnecessary to oppose a development that we believe will adversely affect the flood levels we currently experience.
Initially the affected properties were notified that the development was being put on hold to address our concerns.
Now a project that was put on hold, because of flooding and traffic concerns, has been recommenced without any notification by council.
We used to regularly have the company of kangaroos at the rear of our property, however, sadly we have none as their corridors are slowly being removed. What happened to green belts?
When will this environmental vandalism stop?
Changes to legislation by a previous state government have made it difficult for council to oppose development, but enough is enough.
It's time for council to stand up and represent the ratepayer.
