Work is expected to begin in the next few weeks on the first stages of the proposed mitigation plan Ian Cook told the 45 residents who attended this morning's meeting (Saturday 18 April) at the Community Hall. Ian stressed that while the Community Plan is important, we all need to have our own Survival Plans completed and our houses well prepared.
Many Cove locals would have heard the helicopter landing at the Community Hall tonight (Friday). This followed a house fire in The Esplanade (west). Three people including a very young baby were transported to hospital.
A meeting for crucial importance for all Cove Residents is scheduled for 10am on 18 April next. At this meeting, Ian Cook, our RFS Community Protection Planning Officer, will present the draft Community Protection Plan for the village.
Describing the agenda for this special meeting, Ian said:
It is my intention to do a brief introduction on the risk planning process and the introduction of Community Protection Plans stemming from the Royal Commission findings and recommendations into the tragic 2009 Victorian Fires.
The week before the NSW State Election the Government announced as one of their policies, the speeding up of the provision of water & sewage projects.
Of particular interest was the local electorate DECISION that if the State Liberal & National Parties are re elected as Government ,(opinion Polls say this will happen) then both water & sewage WOULD BE DELIVERED to the areas of Pindimir, Bundabah & North Arm Cove in the next 4 year term of Government. (2015-2019).
The evening of last Wed 25 March I attended the Councils Community presentation in relation to Dredging the Myall River & Corrie Island restoration projects. Meeting was lead by Gerard Tuckerman from GLC & supported by Neil Kellerman , Nat Res Officer.
