NACCAi drainage subcommittee report - resident review and feedback requested
InformationbobreidSunday, 28 February 2021 - 11:49am
In 2017 MidCoast Council engaged consultants to prepare a drainage strategy for North Arm Cove. This strategy made many recommendations for improving drainage in the Cove.
A link to this strategy was placed on the website in September 2020 – you can view it by clicking on this link - 2017 drainage strategy.
Over the past few months the NACCAi roads and drainage subcommittee (Gary Sylvaney and Seamus Devlin) has been reviewing progress with this strategy, and has undertaken thorough inspections of drainage throughout the Cove, and discussed drainage problems with many residents and with officers from MidCoast Council. The end result of this review is a comprehensive report on drainage which provides an update on recommendations listed in the 2017 strategy, and lists over 20 new drainage issues that require fixing.
In summary, the subcommittee is pleased with Council’s progress on implementing the 2017 strategy, many actions have been completed and more are scheduled to be done. Council has been very responsive in working with the subcommittee and a lot of remedial work has been undertaken in recent months by staff from Council’s Tea Gardens depot.
The next step is to seek feedback from Cove residents on this report, in particular the subcommittee is seeking comments on the observations in the report, suggestions for improving drainage, and information on any drainage issues that have not been covered in the report.
Following this feedback, the subcommittee will work with Council to finalise the report and develop a timetable for the high priority actions.
So, please read the report, and email your feedback and suggestions to email@example.com by the end of March.
I think that Gary and Seamus have done a great job in preparing this report, and on behalf of NACCAi and the North Arm Cove community, I thank them for their good work.
