Save Our Spit

Another Offshore Cruise Ship Terminal proposal is on the table !

The Mayor of the Gold Coast  Tom Tate , again is spearheading a development that would drastically change and essential destroy a pristine part of the Northern Gold Coast . One of the last open spaces , with picture postcard waterways on one side and world class surf beaches on the other .

Once its gone its gone ! And the fight to hold onto one of the last open spaces on the much developed Northern Gold Coast has been ongoing for over 15 years .

The wider community concerns are not only about the environmental impacts but the lack of thought about infrastructure  to support this narrow peninsula  serviced by one road that often grid locks .

It also happens to have a world class waves , South Stradbroke on its day can produce beach breaks that are the envied all over the world, and the Spit also has been known to fire up every now and then !

Groups like Save Our Spit and Gecko have been vocal about the detrimental effect of building a Cruise  Ship Terminal in such a pristine waterway as of course the local community of Surfers , Boat owners and others that regularly use the area. 

Much has been written on social media, motives implying the obvious land grab of crown land ,but this article by the Liquify Team on the latest proposal by Mayor Tom Tate really explains some hard facts about how "left field" this plan really is and the real motives behind this development !
