Port Geographe article

Very interesting article in the Australian Financial Review.

Just goes to show what can happen if something goes wrong with a canal development like this.   They are extremely invasive, so a lot can go wrong, that is why they banned them in NSW and Victoria.

See government information

“Port Geographe to bring about major benefits for local residents and the wider community”.  Look familiar? 

 

 

 

 

“It’s a failed development three times over – the government can’t afford a fourth.”
