NO BLUEBERRY FARM BOAMBEE

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


A proposed blueberry farm is set to be built in the Rural Residential area of Boambee, between the pacific highway and Lindsays Road.

The council has sent out a letter of approval to all bordering properties, however, if this proposed farm were to go ahead, it is not only the bordering properties that would be affected.

If you disapprove of this proposed farm, please sign this petition OR take action and submit a written submission to the general manager at Coffs Harbour City Council before the cutoff date of Monday 14th May 2018.

A main concern is the high levels of toxic chemicals used to spray these crops in such a close proximity to Boambee Public School. (Marked as a red X on the map is the school, and the yellow area is the proposed site). Against strong winds, these chemicals can be transported and settle more than 2km from the area they were originally sprayed in. This very well puts the school in the danger zone, allowing for students and teachers, and residing neighbours, to be exposed the unknown concoction of chemicals used to treat these crops.

Do you want your child or nearby family to be exposed to, and breathing in these chemicals? 

Another worry is that the proposed property borders the beautiful Boambee Creek. Affects from the farming could contaminate or effect water levels downstream, potential all the way out to our magnificent Coffs Coastline. 

If you disapprove of this proposed farm, please sign this petition OR take action and submit a written submission to the general manager at Coffs Harbour City Council before the cutoff date of Monday 14th May 2018. 

You must include on your submission letter: your full name, address, email, phone number, signature of all parties included in this letter and the Application number: 0797/18DA. All submissions can be emailed to Coffs Council.

Submission guidlines can be obtained from the council website www.coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au/SubmissionsPolicy
