We believe we had overwhelming public backing for our planned public meeting on Thursday, February 26 to support the rezoning of land at the entrance to Tura Beach for a Bunnings and the likes of an Aldi. Its cancellation is a severe blow for our coastal strip.
For years the southern part of the shire has been starved of infrastructure – particularly retail infrastructure – because of the application of an outdated planning approach designed and administered by non-elected bureaucrats and based on flawed assumptions which bear no resemblance to the real world.
The Bega Valley Shire Residents & Ratepayers Association (BVSRRA) is delighted to confirm that it has been advised that the application by Bega Valley Shire Council (BVSC) to the NSW Department of Planning for its Gateway Panel to accept and approve for public exhibition BVSC’s proposal to rezone Lots 33 and 34 DP243029 Tura Beach Drive, Tura Beach to a B5 Business Development Zone, has been rejected.
This year we need to see better planning, better follow through and tangible improvements to access for all of us and our visitors to all of our public recreation facilities and public buildings. It is not just for people in chairs, but grey nomads, retirees, mums with prams and persons recovering from recent illness or injury. That needs to be better understood.
