Statement: No Development of Blowhole Point

I am shocked and totally appalled by proposals to overdevelop Blowhole Point.

The land in question is Crown Land not Council or private land. I will not support any proposal which destroys the very reason why people came to our beautiful community in the first place.

I am concerned about overdevelopment in our community and will ensure that the overwhelming view of local residents’ voices are heard and that the cabins remain in place.
