Smiths Beach plan bucks recent trend

29 August 2007

Letter by Barry Newman in the Busselton~Dunsborough Mail

NOW that Smiths Beach development has been released for public scrutiny and comment, are we going to be able to see the original draft for this area, compiled by a dedicated committee appointed by the council, or are we supposed to make an informed judgment based on the distorted copy previously submitted for consideration?

As I understand it, the original draft recommended only 100 units and no hotel, certainly not the small town as proposed.

This development flies in the face of the efforts over the years to protect the dunes through limited access to the beach.

In light of what came out in the CCC investigation I cannot see how approval for this project could be given in good conscience, particularly as it does not come within a bull's roar of even the submitted recommended development for this area.
