Presentation of Petitions – Report Required

Clr Gartner presented a petition containing 560 signatures which states:

We, the undersigned, demand that Shoalhaven City Council remove the large green pots that have been placed in front of the Inlet Cinema, Sussex Inlet.

Their colour and size don’t fit in with the heritage nature of the building or anything else in the streetscape upgrade. For their size they are too close together, they impede both the visual view of the building as well as the posters advertising the movies and events that are coming to the cinema. Further, they take up a lot of space in the small area set aside for customers. This space is necessary, and required by Council, to keep customers from blocking the free flow of pedestrians on the footpath.

If trees are planted in them one of them will be growing under electricity wires coming from the far side of Jacobs Drive to the cinema which may cause problems down the track.

We call on Council to remove the pots and return the paving to its original condition prior to the pots being placed where they are.
