Council calls for "on-ground" results for Mount Buffalo Chalet

COUNCIL'S Chief Executive Officer Ian Nicholls and Mayor Peter Roper met with the State Government last week to discuss the future of the historic Mount Buffalo Chalet.

Council met with Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith on Wednesday, 15 February, and have welcomed the Minister’s response to calls for the building to be resurrected.

“”It is good to see an increased commitment to resolving the issues at Mount Buffalo and improving the communication on these”, Mr Nicholls said.

“However, after five years of studies, it would be a more positive outcome for the community to see clear evidence of on-the-ground action being taken.”

Mr Nicholls said Council has offered assistance to facilitate outcomes if required.

“We understand what the community wants for the chalet and we’re here to make sure local voices are heard,” he said.

“We have reiterated our commitment to representing the community.

“In the long-term, Council would like to see the development of a plan for the entire Mount Buffalo National Park, not simply the chalet but other facilities to make the most of the stunning natural resource we have right on our doorstep.

“We look forward to working with the government for more immediate outcomes to take place.”
