Burrum land up for discussion

LAND owned by the Fraser Coast Regional Council at Burrum Town will be discussed at tomorrow's meeting – but behind closed doors during the confidential session.

And while the Sustainability Charter comes up for debate tomorrow, only five submissions were received, including suggestions that the council reconsiders its ruling on keeping back yard poultry, an open cut mine proposal for Aldershot will “severely impact” on the health of those living within five kilometres and mining in the region “will destroy everything the residents came for in the first place”.

Councillors will also discuss amendments to the council's standing orders for conduct of council and committee meetings.

That's largely because this year the council adopted a three-committee structure and abolished portfolios and informal briefings.

Other matters coming up cover the Yengarie Rural Fire Brigade's and Tiaro Rural Fire Brigade's applications for leases.

The council is recommending that both Yengarie and Tiaro get two 10-year consecutive leases.

Tomorrow's meeting starts at 9.30am in City Hall in Maryborough.
