MidCoast Council destination management plan

I see MidCoast Council has developed a destination management plan.

For some unknown reason someone thinks the destination has to be the council boundaries despite the facts that most of the population don't agree with the council boundaries.

This means throwing away the Manning Valley, Great Lakes and Gloucester/Barrington history and trying to drive something no-one understands.

These areas are unique destinations now. A destination management plan needs to build on the destinations that area already strong.

The council’s boundaries are irrelevant.

As to the economic benefit of a combined destination I can only quote that 'there are lies, damned lies and statistics'. 

Really, can't we be sensible... for once.
