Photos taken 24 hours after the rain stopped. This is the epicentre of the proposed construction zone.
The community submission to the latest DA on Lot 156 is currently being finalised. A number of confounding factors have had to be navigated first. If you would like this to be sent to you please send an email through the website to let us know.
One key issue remains flooding. The 2005 flood clearly shows the estuary trying to find a new path following the illegal dredging, construction of a dam and construction of a house in such a position that the old path cannot be reopened. Only two options are available to the water as it flows down from the large catchment into the short estuary. The first is through the middle of the planned construction zone on Lot 156 as can be seen in the photos below, the second is down creek street, inundating houses there.
