WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE A SAY?
Council will only progress this project and seek funding to support the works if a clear majority of the community is in favour. It is critical the community reviews the information and makes an informed yes or no to the works proceeding.
Council will collate all the responses received and consider the next step at its 20 February 2018 meeting.
