Progress in Nelligen?

The Eurobodalla Shire Council on the New South Wales Far South Coast says its draft Villages Development Control Plan will help preserve the cultural heritage of key towns in the region.

The plan is now on public exhibition in Rick’s Nelligen Cafe, and submissions can be made until July 26.

Its aim is to preserve the cultural heritage of Nelligen, Bodalla, Central Tilba, Tilba Tilba, as well as the Tilba Conservation Area.

The Council's Strategy and Heritage Planner, Steve Halicki, says the plan will assist developers.

"To a certain degree the development control plan sets a vision for the development of those areas, and gives an expectation and certainty to developers what they can and can't do within those areas with their development," he said.

Council has booked the Nelligen hall for 4.00 to 7.00pm Tuesday 22 June for public discussion.

We have new neighbours!

Richard and Wendy aboard the Seven Seas 37 ketch "Charon" anchored off "Riverbend" yesterday. They are from Hobart and will sail for tropical Queensland in a day or two. The best neighbours to have!

The four of us had dinner by the fireplace, washed it all down with mulled wine, and then started on our sing-a-long. Richard plays a mean honkytonk piano and I joined in with my squeezebox and it turned into a really great night.
