The Creek to Creek Chamber of Commerce 2010 Business Awards is fast approaching, and here are the outstanding local businesses, youth achievers and not-for-profits announced as finalists.
In the details of the awards it would be great of you could correct the spelling of Tugun . A Chamber of Commerce should know how to spell its areas.
I live at the southern end of the Gold Coast because I hate all the high rises and other manmade monstrosities on the Northern end.
I definitely do not want a cruise ship terminal of any sort anywhere on the Gold Coast.
It would be an eyesore.
It would not bring many dollars.
It would bring many more buses to our roads.
It would spoil the look of the Coast.
It would impact badly on the marine ecosystems.
It is an attempt to grab our public land either at no cost to the developer or at minimal purchase price with no benefits to the community.
How to spoil what people come to the Southern end of the Gold Coast for. I have spoken to many people on the beach at Bilinga and when I tell them what is proposed they are horrified and said they wouldn't return to the area if it the terminal went ahead. We have to protest loud and long to stop this stupidity. A land grab for a greedy developer.
