Lovers of the Eurobodalla Coast are encouraged to have their say on its future by joining the council’s Coast and Environment Management Advisory Committee.

The group will bring residents, community groups and business representatives together to help manage the Eurobodalla’s waterways through land-use planning, natural resource management and strategic input.

Five positions are available to community group representatives from three districts.

They included Durras to Surfside; Batemans Bay CBD to Malua Bay; and Moruya to Potato Point.

Nominations are also sought from oyster growers and people with a background in coastal science.

Committee chairwoman Mayor Liz Innes encouraged younger residents, in particular, to get behind the committee.

“We are seeking a diversity of views,” Cr Innes said.

“Which is why the committee includes representatives from business, tourism, sporting groups and Landcare,” she said.

“We want to focus on the legacy we leave to our youth and future generations so they can enjoy our coastline with the same freedom we enjoyed.”

Details, including eligibility criteria and how to make an expression of interest, can be found by searching ‘Coast and Environment Management Advisory Committee’ on the council’s website.

Applications close on Tuesday 24 October 2017.
