The Council is in the process of organising DA’s for the 8 blocks at the back of “Kangaroo” Park on the North Shore. This is to assure potential purchasers that they can build. The report which was supposed to be presented at the July meeting has now been moved to 20 September 2020.

Yesterday, the Coordinator of the National Bush Fire Agency,Andrew Colvin, conducted a video conference with the General Manager of the Council, Lucilla Marshall, Council, various Hastings Progress Associations and a representative from Mental Health. NSPA President and Fire Captain,Kingsley Searle, and Narelle Milligan NSPA and SES North Port Macquarie CAT team attended.

Andrew was focussed on assistance at a local level in conjunction with the NSW Government. Kingsley stressed the need for better communication, provision of electronic signs and improvement of the “Fires Near Me” app. which  has proved to be too slow in recent fires.  We will provide more updates on this as they are supplied.

Council has agreed to our request as well as  those from essential workers who are residents, to restrict the access to the ferries,allowing residents, essential services and food deliveries only.  The restrictions  will apply to tourists’/visitors’ vehicles as well as motor bikes and dirt bikes. This is in line with the recent NSW legislation that travel must be restricted to control Covid-19. We hope this will keep the drivers safe as the top priority but also control the access to the beach which was very congested last weekend by visitors.

Signs will be placed at the ferries this afternoon and restrictions will start at midnight for the duration of the school holidays.  Council and the contractor will constantly monitor the situation and review at the end of April.
