Thinking of buying in Wooli?
Whether holidaying or investing, now is a great time to take another look at Wooli’s real estate
Government regulations threatening Wooli have been removed.
Clarence Valley Council has removed the threat of “planned retreat” from Wooli’s draft coastal plan. Instead CVC’s unanimous decision is to develop a research-based beach protection strategy by June 2013 and
The NSW government has changed state regulations so that councils need only include known hazards in planning approvals rather than the theoretical and onerous long term hazards previously required.
The physical threat from coastal erosion is being addressed.
Under new state government regulations property owners are better able to protect their premises from erosion and further changes aimed at improving protection of coastal townships including Wooli are coming in 2013; and
The Wooli community group, CCPA-Wooli Inc. is working closely with Council and state government departments (Environment, Planning and Local Government) to develop achievable protection strategies addressing long term (eg regular sand nourishment) and short term (eg sand traps, sand pumping, beach scraping) needs.
The beach and dunes are looking great and continuing to improve.
Wooli’s Dunecare group was reactivated in 2011 with the aim of rebuilding the fore-dune using sand traps and plantings to catch and retain windblown sand (which accounts for about 10% of beach sand loss). As shown in these dunecare highlights from 2012 many of the original traps are buried, the spinifex is spreading quickly and the dune is growing. CVC and Dunecare are in discussions as to how Council could help accelerate the process with more materials and labour.
These changes paint a much sunnier picture of Wooli property than in 2010. Now could be the right time to consider investing in Wooli’s uniquely wonderful lifestyle.
