The Lone Silent Protester Who Is Fighting Noise - Merran Blockey ‘Signed’ Up And Headed To The Douglas Shire Council To Be Heard

April 27, 2021

When things might get loud who do you call? Noisebuster Merran Blockey from Cape Trib Farm that's who. When a cafe in Cape Tribulation made application for a variation of conditions to their liquor licence that involved music, Merran headed to todays meeting of the DSC to state her case. The cafe wants a ruling on the decibels (dB) it aims to pump out. While The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation have the final say, Merran wanted Councillors to send a clear message to the owners of the Turtle Rock Cafe that it's not conducive to the area. It seems she was listened to. Paul Makin chats to this charged up Cape Crusader.

FAB FM’s Paul Makin Trying To Get The Bottom Of Claims That DSC Councillors Are Not Getting All The Information Before Voting - Dep Mayor Lisa Scomazzon & Mayor Michael Kerr Help Paul Sort It Out

April 20, 2021

FAB FM's Paul Makin revisits a vote at the last Douglas Shire Council meeting to rescind part of a previous unanimous decision by Councillors to give the green light to a developer to make application to the State Government to close a road reserve in Port Douglas. Councillors Noli, Zammataro and Deputy Mayor Lisa Scomazzon voted to reverse the previous decision despite the fact the road is not Council owned. The Deputy Mayor says lack of information at the Council meeting in December last year is the major reason for her change of heart. It's not the first time the Deputy has voiced her frustration over information provided . Paul chats with Lisa and brings in the Mayor Michael Kerr for his response to her claims. The link to the DA application published on the Douglas Shire Council website on the 2nd December is below. https://douglas.qld.gov.au/development-applications/
