OUR souls and spirits are revitalised and calmed by beauty. That’s why we live in Bass Coast, but our towns are getting busier. With Wonthaggi forecast to be the next Geelong, we must be proactive in advising the Bass Coast Council of what we love about our town and how we can retain it.
One resident has described the present situation in Wonthaggi as “progress by property developers”. While residents’ associations and individuals can object to developers’ plans, and councils can reject inappropriate developments, disappointed developers almost always appeal to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, which has the last word.
