Meetings held in the Cove during July and September have revealed some proposed new directions for developments at the Fame Cove Properties belonging to Mr Lee's company, Tea Garden Farms.
The North Arm Cove Residents Association Fame Cove Sub Committee, supplemented by representatives from Bundabah and Pindimar, has been meeting with Mr Lee’s Project Delivery Manager: Stuart Murray of Site R&D. Stuart is contracted to plan and initiate works ordered by the Land and Environment Court on 25 September 2017. Those orders followed proceedings brought by Midcoast Council.
The turmoil in politics over the past week has led to some local disappointment. The Federal MP for Lyne, Dr David Gillespie's name was missing from the new Morrison Ministry announced earlier today (Sunday 26 August). Dr Gillespie had been Assistant Minister for Children and Families in the last Turnbull ministry. He had been allocated that portfolio only last December. Before that Dr Gillespie had served as Assistant Minister for Health and Assistant Minister for Rural Health.
A large crowd of mostly perplexed MidCoast residents were present at Council's meeting on Wednesday 22 August. The vast majority of these residents were expressing their support for a recission motion aimed at overturning a contentious decision from Council's last meeting.

Intended as a theme park when it was built many years ago by the Leyland Brothers, it looked like a mini Ayers Rock/Uluru and became a familiar landmark to travellers on the Pacific Highway. It has long been a favourite stopping point for truckies, buses and holiday makers.
For Cove dwellers it has also been much appreciated as the handiest spot for buying fuel, newspapers and milk.
Gary Sylvaney's Report on the MCC and Tea Gardens/Hawkes Nest Chambers Vibrant Spaces Program
Held 12:30 PM Thursday 26th. July 2018.
Whilst the subject of the meeting did not directly affect NAC, I accepted an invitation as an opportunity to gain further insight and understanding of our Councils progress since the amalgamation and restructuring. I was not disappointed. The objective of VIBRANT SPACES is to increase tourism and customer numbers throughout the municipalities shopping precincts by making footpaths outside businesses attractive, interesting and inviting. The concept grew out of the experience of Taree in 1997 when the Pacific...
