How much more inappropriate housing developments will Moyne Shire endorse? A letter was posted out to Port Fairy residents the week before Christmas supporting rezoning flood plain to residential land to allow a seven hectare 72 house development called Rivers Run Estate. It is to be built close to the Port Fairy township in the Belfast Lough environs. As part of the Port Fairy Coastal and Structure Plan accepted by the council this land is to become Rural Conservation Zone "to reflect the environmental and landscape values of the area and to recognise the land is subject to combined riverine, estuarine and coastal inundation". The Port Fairy Coastal and Structure Plan, C69, has been held back from Victorian Planning Minister approval so this development can be attached to it. It is time to stand up to the council and the developer and say no.
