The Mayor of the Eurobodalla Shire on the New South Wales far south coast, Fergus Thomson, says he is satisfied there will be no further opposition to the council’s controversial Local Environmental Plan.
The plan has been sent to the State Planning Department but only after protracted discussions and meetings to thrash out problems surrounding the LEP.
A number of councillors said they had serious problems relating to native vegetation and floor space ratios, but Councillor Thomson says the concerns have been resolved.
Councillor Thomson says there will be a call for public submissions shortly.
“It is a draft, and so we will then receive submissions if people have some things that they see as, that are not meeting their sort of personal needs and concerns,” he said.
“So we’ll look at those.”
