Blayney asks new Planning Minister to visit Southgate Dunes

Geraldton MLA Ian Blayney has invited new Planning Minister Hon Donna Faragher to Geraldton so that she can better evaluate the implications of any changes to the local planning scheme. 

“I would certainly welcome the opportunity to show Minister Faragher the dunes and meet with agencies to discuss the potential for degradation and erosion that may arise from any proposed development. 

“Community sentiment has changed since the City’s proposal to change the local planning scheme to allow development was put forward. 

“There is no appetite in Geraldton for either change to the scheme or development of the dunes. 

“This is an important issue for Geraldton and I look forward to hearing that Minister Faragher has accepted my invitation
