NSW Planning and Environment (DPE) is hosting a meeting tonight at the Raymond Terrace Bowling Club, at 6:30pm.
It will be very helpful to have as many concerned people there as possible, so please come along.
We met one of the DPE staff this morning and showed all the issues with the road and intersections, narrow or non existent shoulders and lack of paths and proper bus stops etc. There were plenty of Hanson and Martins Creek quarry trucks using the road.
The DPE will outline what is in Hanson’s proposal, explain their role in the process for assessing the EIS, the importance of submissions from the public and also how to lodge a submission. The BHSA committee will present our preliminary assessment of the EIS and response to it. Suffice to say we are very disappointed after 4 years of CCC meetings. VOWW will also present their concerns, and then concerns and comments will be sought from the audience.
Please come and show your support and express your own concerns.
We hope to see you there tonight. If you cannot make it, make sure that you lodge your submission by 9th April. If you want to be involved in the preparation of the BHSA submission, please get in touch.
