While I absolutely believe we need progress and sensible development based on need, not greed, I have no desire to take away the essence of this region. I love that you can walk down Four Mile Beach and not see buildings towering over the trees. I love that we are a green shire. And I honestly believe that we all decided to live here for these reasons. But we can also have sensible and controlled development in the right areas to ensure our local economy continues to grow.
