Oyster lease removal welcomed
The removal of abandoned oyster leases as the final stage of a clean-up of Hardy's Bay has been welcomed by the local community, according to members of the Hardy's Bay Residents' Group.
Terry and Kay Feltham have said that the community had endured for too long the "unsightly" appearance of rows of roofing tiles, concrete slabs and other waste materials which had blemished one of the most picturesque outlooks on the Brisbane Water.
According to Mr and Mrs Feltham, the latest stage is well underway with approximately two-thirds of the project already completed.
"An enthusiastic response by volunteers from the local community has significantly contributed to the current situation," Ms Feltham said.
"Depending on favourable weather and tides, an early 2010 completion date is anticipated."
The local couple were responsible for pursuing the issue several years ago, leading to a State Government grant of $15,000 for the clean-up campaign.
