⚠️SAVE DAINTREE - AGAIN⚠️

April 2020

The new Douglas Shire mayor, Michael Kerr and the council itself, has moved fast with a series of proposals and decisions that threaten some of our greatest assets and how we market them with no attempt at seeking expert advice or asking the community if they are happy with such fundamental policy shifts.

No one expected them to attack some of the shire’s iconic assets with such speed. On their own each of these issues is substantial, collectively they signal a fundamental shift in direction from pro-environment/business/tourism/agriculture to pro-development.

Overall we are appalled that changes with huge environmental and economic impact would be put to the second meeting of a new council with no engagement from the community or any kind of expert advice.

We need your help to fight these proposed changes
