The Yandina Creek Progress Association (YCPA) has been fighting hard to stop a MEGA Quarry being built in Coolum's backyard. As many of you know, the Council rejected an application from Parklands Blue Metal Pty Ltd to quarry a beautiful area in Verrierdale/Yandina Creek. The developer has appealed the Council's decision in the Planning & Environment Court.
The YCPA has been raising funds for our own legal representation through all sorts of FUNdraisers. The Trial was scheduled to begin on July 22, however as the new issue of possible impacts of the quarry on the proposed new runway at Sunshine Coast Airport has been included, the trial has been deferred until November 18, 2013. This extension allows both Council and Parklands Blue Metal to engage the necessary aviation experts.
The delay has resulted in extra costs for the YCPA so we are again holding another Drag Queen Bingo night this Saturday 24th August at Coolum Civic Centre. Please lend your support to cause by bringing your friends along for a great night of entertainment- tickets available on-line www.quarryfight.com.au or at the door. We are so close to having the funds available for our day(s) in Court but we need your support to get there!! For more info view the Disco Drag Queen Bingo Flyer or go to the website above.
Stop in MEGA Quarry in Coolum's backyard!
