Further details can be obtained by request [on a need to know basis only] as to transcripted content of proceedings and contents of presentation.
Congratulations on a well organized and successful event .
We as the Burrum Chamber had an opportunity with Henry Sapiecha at the meeting to present the case of the Howard Torbanlea area as the epicentre of growth in providing major services to the entire Fraser Coast because of our strategic location here and our Highway-Electric rail-Power-Water.
The fact is also that here are vast tracts of government owned land where extensive industrial estates could be built, large land parcels for affordable housing for the workforce could be made available and a more suitable airport for conveyancing of goods, materials and people on a larger scale to that currently existing in the Fraser Coast.
This new centre of growth will be within half an hour to all points of the compass from Maryborough, Hervey Bay,Childers and beyond.
The new amalgamated council is now the Fraser Coast which in the long term should be serviced by a more strategically located base central to all villages and towns that they have been entrusted to serve.
Mr King of FCRC has replied that they are in the process of discussing with state government the possibilities and feasabilities of such endeavours in the Burrum area with the intention of utilizing effectively the existing services that Torbanlea and Howard possess.
We at the Burrum Chamber shall keep you posted as we get updates.
The execs of the Burrum Chamber fell justifiably satisfied that our endeavours in promoting this event in conjunction with the other chambers contributed significantly to the success of this breakfast meeting attendance.
The quality of content by the speakers was exceptional and we all thank them for that.
The Burrum Chamber has distributed many hundreds of flyers on the event earlier via an email data base that has been collated over time as well as posting a version of the event in our web site.
To all involved CONGATULATIONS ON A JOB WELL DONE
