Port Stephens Council has withdrawn its support for this contentious Application because it has succumbed to pressure from the community to at last insist on a proper Species Impact Statement, which has not been provided by the proponent. Council has received over 1200 submissions on this proposal and the matter had an airing on the ABC 7.30 Report last Friday, 28 March 2014. HERE

The Council has released a media statement HERE

The Soldiers Point Community Group has released a statement to members HERE

This longstanding matter has been reported to TRRA Inc. meetings over the last three years, we have worked with the local community group and have covered it  HERE

TRRA Inc. has also made several submissions to Council on this subject:

120504 SP Marina TRRA submission 

130408 SP Marina TRRA Submission Final

140321 SP Marina extension -TRRA submission

This long running saga needs to be told in full and has major implications for Council and the way the Planning Department has been handling major developments over the last few years. More to follow as time permits.
