Former Greater Taree City Councillor, Peter Epov, today called for an independent review of the MidCoast amalgamation saying that he has serious reservations about the success of the amalgamation experiment, and the ability of the new Council to effectively service the ratepayers and residents of the new Local Government Area.

Land Sale Ad 1982siriusTue, 11/07/2017 - 12:23pm

A change.org petion has been set up by non-urban land owners frustrated that they are obliged to continue to pay rates on blocks of land for which no services are provided and on which they cannot build. In some cases, they cannot even access their land thanks to the poor state of the non-urban roads. Council has, over the years, become the owner of hundreds of these lots as other owners have given up in despair.

Between 1919 and 1922, Stroud Council had approved subdivisions involving many thousands of lots around the North Arm Cove peninsular...

Well in excess of a hundred people from the Cove, Bundabah, Pindimar and further afield listened intently to a detailed presentation of the history of the site and the very concerning discrepancies between the content of the DA proposal and the known facts.

After an extensive Q&A-and-comments session, a sea of hands showed overwhelming support for a motion that this meeting calls upon Council to reject Development Application...

Paying for emergency servicespeterfSun, 04/06/2017 - 4:42pm

The proposed introduction of a new Fire and Emergency Services Levy has been put on hold with the NSW Government arguing that new modelling has indicated that the new system would have had an unexpected and unfair impact on a range of land owners, including the owners of some commercial and industrial property. It is even possible the levy will be abandoned altogether.

This is great news for those who own non-urban blocks in North Arm Cove as they would have been hit by at least the base rate of $100 even though the land’s value is very low...
