FRIENDS OF LEE POINT 3 of 4 SUPPORT FOR SAVE LEE POINT City of Dawin council votes YES to Save Lee Point on 12 October The council voted overwhelmingly in favour (11 to 1) on the Save Lee Point Motion. Aldermen Rebecca Want De Rowe moved the motion and Justine Glover seconded it. The Save Lee Point motion asks the Planning Minister to put a moratorium on the current development of Lee Point until the NT Planning Commission, an independent authority, has developed a comprehensive area plan for the whole of Lee Point as it has done for other published area plans such as the Central Palmerston Area plan and the Humpy Doo Rural Activity Centre Master Plan. People lining up to get in to watch the council discuss/vote on the Save Lee Point motion.

MC was Nick Kirlew from Planning Action Network. FLP speakers (David Percival, Kasey Hansen, Ian Redmond) said there was very limited consultation with the community on the Lee Point Area Plan and limited awareness on the scope and impacts of housing thousands of people at Lee Point.
