The Sunshine Coast Daily has released the Power 100, the 100 most influential people in our region over the past 12 months. From savvy business owners pushing our economy forward to the voices calling for social change, many Coast residents caught the country’s attention in 2019. These are the individuals that pushed the boundaries and made an impact on our community’s conversations in 2019.
Sunshine Coast Environment Council is proud to announce that our Liaison and Advocacy Officer, Narelle McCarthy has once again made the Power 100 list of 2019 and in the mix of '19 women who shook up the Coast.'
Narelle has been a long standing volunteer and employee of SCEC and continues to go above and beyond, working across a diverse range of conservation, planning and environmental matters and issues on the coast. Recently, Narelle took on the mammoth task of representing SCEC in the "David and Goliath" court battle at the end of 2019, involving the appeal against Sunshine Coast Council's approval for Sekisui House's five-star resort and residential development in Yaroomba. She also recently penned her objections to council CEO Michael Whittaker against the Badderam Eco Luxe Resort and Spa development in Buderim.
