Proposed zoning of Cove waters

Q. What is this all about and how does it affect me?

A. The GLC tells us that every ratepayer in the shire is affected by these draft plans.But only you can decide the effects for yourself.

To quote from the GLC's website:

"Great Lakes Council has developed two new Council-wide planning documents to guide development throughout the Great Lakes and will undertake extensive community consultation during a public exhibition period from Thursday 14 June until Friday 24 August 2012.

Draft Great Lakes Local Environmental Plan 2012 (Draft LEP 2012) and Draft...

Your village needs you!

Over the years the village has benefited enormously from the efforts of many volunteers who have generously given their time to serve the interests of our community.

The focus of their work has been to protect the Cove's unique environment, to raise funds for projects which improve our lives and to provide a medium for us to lobby local and state governments for better services. As a consequence we have been granted hundreds of thousands of dollars for various capital projects. We have had significant input into local government decision making and, most importantly, everyone knows we count....

I was briefed by Amy McKey, Waste Management Co-ordinator, and David Oates, Council Ranger, last Friday (29/06/2012) on the latest initiative being taken to identify and prosecute those who choose to dump their rubbish in our 'back yards'.

Small and very discrete surveillance cameras are being set up in known hot spots. They have already been used here in the Cove area. The Council is eager to get some prosecutions under its belt to get the message out that dumping will not be tolerated....

Sea Wall FailuretonyhSun, 01/07/2012 - 3:28pm
An example of sea wall failure

At a council meeting with the community at Hawks Nest last November, NACRA put a question to Lisa Schiff, GLC Director of Planning, about the coastal erosion along our foreshore in North Arm Cove. Some waterfront property sea walls and gardens are disappearing because of wave action and poor storm water drainage in the street (resulting in excessive subsurface and surface water run-off).

Lisa Schiff was asked, " Property owners with waterfront blocks – how do they know what they can and can’t do to protect their blocks from erosion? What legislation must they be aware of and who...
