The following is from Garth Cornwall who went along to the first RMS by-pass ‘information session’ at the Coffs Harbour Golf Club on Thursday night (27-9-18);
I went along today and the place was packed with the numbers steadily growing. So much so that all I could do was to get a look at the displays,maps and photos.
I did try to get a Project Manager from the RMS to speak with me,to answer the questions as put by Rod McKelvey. They said that they couldn’t do it and he would get their media person to speak with me.
She took the pages of questions and promised to “answer them the best they could over the next few weeks.”
However they would not be able to answer some, as those answers will probably be in the EIS when it is released.
I think that this exercise leaves more questions than answers about their planning transparency process. The anger was palpable in the room
Hope that you have a good weekend
The proposed ‘bridge tunnels’
It was more ‘Info’ than ‘Consultation’ – so they got this right!
