Green technology park is possible
A SUSTAINABLE Technology Park is a “big ticket” project that Fraser Coast councillor Gerard O’Connell believes is possible.
“It will take a fair bit of planning but it’s something we should be aiming towards for,” he said.
“We see in some parts of the world now, some horrific stories of a bad environment and a bad place to live; we’re lucky to have a good environment and a good place to live and it’s our responsibility, now and for future generations, how we treat that.
“From a business point of view, being sustainable is not about unprofitable. It’s about being viable and sustainable at the same time and that’s what encourage businesses to do.
“As a council we’re very supportive of what Transition Towns is doing.”
