Is this all part of the ‘Activate Cassowary Coast - Development Incentive Plan that is attracting developers and speculators who have no understanding of the values special to Mission Beach?
Reports such as this indicate a skew in favour of developer over public interests.
The proposal does not comply with the strategic intent and desired regional outcomes for Mission Beach in regard to agricultural land, the environment, the cassowary and the village amenity. It must be refused.
The proposal is also likely to have a significant impact on the endangered cassowary
Here's hoping the council will act in the public interest at their general meeting on Thursday and at the very least defer their decision until independent impact reports are produced and the Federal Government has assessed the proposal under the EPBC Act.
Developers have an obligation to refer any development that is likely to have an impact on matters of National Environmental Significance i e World Heritage Areas and threatened species/ ecosystems, all of which are subject to impacts with this proposal.
