Councillors await charcoal survey results

Eurobodalla councillors are expected to be presented with the results of an important community survey tomorrow.

The questionnaire asked what role residents and ratepayers want their council to take in a legal battle to stop a charcoal factory being built near Mogo.

A team of 10 staff members, led by council’s public officer Colleen Worthy-Jennings, were employed to work during the weekend to collate the information contained in the completed survey forms.

The counting was independently scrutinised by a representative from the Attorney-General’s department and all staff members have signed confidentiality agreements.

Thirty days after the matter is finalised, all the survey forms will be destroyed to ensure respondents’ details remain confidential.

The survey put four options to the community and asked what action residents think council should take about the development approval for the Mogo charcoal factory issued by the Minister for Planning.

A report on the result is being prepared today and is to be put to councillors at a special meeting tomorrow morning.
