What is the Hervey Bay City Council going to do?
It seems that the current water restrictions that are in force in Hervey Bay and the surge in developments have been on minds of a number of local residents lately.
Last night one local resident asked me why the Council are allowing the major developments to go ahead when we are obviously short of water. Of course we’ve had droughts in the past, and this one may break sooner rather than later, but now we’re facing dire warnings of more droughts that will last longer.
So why is the council not cutting back on these developments?
Then today Fred Chick, who lives in one of the drier parts of Hervey Bay, left this comment on a very old post that most people won’t see.
A suggestion for the council. One way to save our water level dropping any more, would be to suspend building more new houses and stop giving approval for big resorts and high rise buildings. This suspension would ease the supply until the infrastructure catches up with progress.
Let’s hope the Hervey Bay City Council is listening Fred because if they aren’t we could be in serious trouble in the years ahead.
