Rev David Hanger addressed Council making the following points:

·    Speaking on behalf of local churches and many citizens of the Shire

·    This is not a development that benefits our community

·    This is Council’s issue, do not pass the buck, take responsibility, exercise moral authority

·    Council to think through the community impact

·    No community impact statement attached to DA even though assurance was given that there would be

·    This development will not make our place a better place

·    Detrimental impact on our citizens

·    Plenty of other places and opportunities to purchase alcohol

·    Majority of citizens of Shire are asking to reject this DA

 


Ms Louise Robinson addressed Council making the following points:

·    CEO Nambucca Heads Local Aboriginal Land Council

·    The Land Council voted not to have liquor on their land

·    Social and moral argument

·    Development will offer cheaper liquor than current outlets

·    1 license for every 436 people in Shire

·    Concerns that people will walk from Aboriginal Reserve to liquor outlet and be placed in danger due to traffic, assault on women, danger to Aboriginals

·    Domestic violence will be greater

·    Riverside Drive not the best place for a liquor outlet.

 

Mr Geoff Smyth addressed Council making the following points:

·    All statistics relevant but weighting is different in all situations

·    Government has established a special authority in recognition of the complexities

·    Up to Liquor and Gaming Licensing Board to approve and assess and that Council has “ticked all the other boxes”

·    Deferred commencement is correct way to go about this.

Ms Kate Henderson spoke to a prepared statement a copy of which is on file DA2010/031.
