Council told to look into future with Maclean IGA

THE Maclean Community Action Group met at the Maclean Bowling Club last night to discuss plans for the proposed IGA to be built in the town.

Tina Vitolins attended the meeting and said she would be "sorely disappointed if council elects to go ahead" with the current DA.

"Considering that the DA itself falls 29 car spaces short of councils own current policy among many other problems that the proposal has it would be legally and morally wrong for it to go ahead," she said.

"Maclean deserves better and should be afforded the opportunity to grow, not stick a supermarket into a tiny space with no room for growth."

Ms Vitolins said council staff needed to look into the future before acting in the present.

"This supermarket proposal does not take into account growth in Maclean population," she said.

"Our elected councillors have the opportunity to stop this gross injustice and deliver to the people of Maclean a supermarket that can serve them into the future.

"I for one will be sorely disappointed if it's allowed to go ahead."

What do you think? Are you happy with the current DA?
