So who has a bad case of egg on face when it comes to an Iluka DA - The Daily Examiner or the NSW Nationals Member for Clarence?
On 13 January 2017 The Daily Examiner contained this little nugget of information on Page 3:
State Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis agreed there were plenty of good arguments to support their case, and said he wa “absolutely supportive” of their fight [for an ambulance station].
But he said it would be an uphill battle, partly due to the village’s small size.
Iluka has a population of about 2000 but it is growing, with planning for a 162 lot subdivision just finalised.
Planning for a 162 lot subdivision just finalised?
Seems either Chris Gulaptis is spinning the situation or the newspaper took its eyes off the ball.
Planning appears to be far from finalised.
This was on Page 31 of Clarence Valley Council’s Environment, Planning & Community Committee Meeting Business Paper of 14 February 2017:
SUB2015/0034 11/12/2015 297 162 lot Residential Subdivision and new roads
ILUKA NSW 2466
Additional information received and unsatisfactory.
Further information has been requested 24/1/17 (flora and fauna, stormwater, sewer, cultural heritage)
In addition, the formal staff report to council is yet to be tabled and deliberations of the Northern Joint Regional Planning Panel are not yet completed.
