Development Port Douglas Waterfront - Richard Lavender Candidate

"From discussions with the community I am not certain that redesigning the waterfront along the Dixon Inlet is in the best interest of Port Douglas or the shire. Frugal considerations of maintenance costs needs to be examined in the short and long term and offered to the community for review.

 I would encourage fellow Council Representatives to seek community consultation and gain a mandate with a referendum on the matter from the community."
- Richard Lavender

A Waterfront Park could be a significant community asset. It could also be one of the shires greatest liabilities. The project needs be put on hold until the Shire has full control of its assets and spending. At the right time, the idea itself and all design and location options need to be once again discussed. Once we have made up our collective minds and are ready to move ahead, fully united as a Shire, we would need to vigorously pursue receiving some major, and much deserved, State and Federal government funding.

Do you have issues regarding the Douglas Shire that you think are important?
Let's start the conversation!
