We hope the news has spread about a very important meeting at Wooli on 26 February. It will be a Solutions Workshop Planning for Success, not Retreat.
For some months, CCPA has been discussing what might be done to protect our wonderful village from both coastal erosion and the â€œplanned retreatâ€ policy. At this meeting, we will hear about the very real possibility that our community can make a stand for Wooli ‘s future, with the help of some expert coastal management advice.
Dr Shaw Mead, the Director of ASR, an international marine engineering consultancy, is coming to look at our beach and talk about possible solutions. Dr Mead has already completed a preliminary study at Old Bar Beach, a community with similar problems to Wooli ‘s.
Professor Roger Tomlinson will talk about coastal management and beach regeneration. He is head of Coastal Management Studies at Griffith University.
Catherine Cusack, Shadow Minister for Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability, and Steve Cansdell, Member for Clarence, will be VIP guests.
It promises to be a fascinating meeting and is taking the Protect Wooli campaign to a new and exciting level. Come along and be part of our efforts to ensure Wooli ‘s future 2.00 to 5.00, Saturday 26 February, in the Wooli Hotel dining area.
WHAT ‘S HAPPENING WITH THE DRAFT PLAN?
The vote on the CVC ‘s Draft Coastal Zone Management Plan released last September has now been definitely deferred until after the State elections on 26March. Our petition, with well over 1000 signatures, will be presented before the vote. You can sign online at protectwooli.com website.
