Opinion has been divided on the campaign for the establishment of a Performing Arts centre in Goulburn.

 

A public meeting to give an overview of the Goulburn Mulwaree council's bid to develop performing arts in Auburn street's Mc Dermott Centre will be held tonight at the council chambers starting at six o'clock.

 

During the development of the concept by council, there has been the question, why the need for a performing arts centre when the facilities of the Veolia arena are already provided.

 

It could be argued that the ambience and architecture of the Mc Dermott Centre lend themselves to the concept of the performing arts.

 

Nearby Auburn street businesses are also asking the question about parking for a multi-seat facility and how that might impact their operations.

 

Goulburn Mulwaree councillor, Margaret O'Neill has been vocal about the issue and she encourages all citizens of Goulburn to attend tonight's meeting.

An independent poll across the Wingecarribee Shire Council has revealed majority opposition to the Hume Coal proposal.

 

The Korean owned enterprise proposes to build the first mega underground mine near Berrima and within Sydney Water catchment.

 

Conducted by Galaxy Research, the poll showed that fewer than one in five people support the project.

 

One significant fear concerns the Hume coal proposal's impact on water and the catchment water supply area and any resulting effect on water purity.

 

The opinion poll was commissioned by the Battle for Berrima movement and surveyed four hundred Wingecarribee shire residents.
