19 June 2007- Meeting with the Kingscliff & District Chamber of Commerce - support for the District Centre was unanimous

The Chinderah Districts Residents also expressed their support for the District Centre at Chinderah.

Overall there has been great support for Gales various proposals, however local residents at Cudgen had three principal concerns with the Project, namely:

  • groundwater with possible impacts on crops and/or livestock, either through increased salinity, loss of water supply or change in water quality;
  • acid sulfate soils with possible odour, red staining and fish kills; and
  • flooding and drainage with possible loss of crops due to flooding and impacts on local waterways.

Each of these, and other relevant environmental issues, have been addressed within the Environmental Assessment prepared for the Project (please click on 'Environmental Assessment' for further information).
