A meeting to discuss the status of the Brisbane Water navigation channel will be held at Ettalong Diggers Memorial Club at 7 pm on Tuesday, September 18.

Ettalong Diggers chief Mr Bill Jackson said he was aware of ongoing community disquiet about the state of the channel and indefinite cancellation of the ferry service to Ettalong and Wagstaffe. “I hope as many members of the community attend as possible,” he said. The main agenda items will be: “What is the long-term plan for the dredging of Ettalong Channel? “What are the Central Coast Council and the State Government implementing to ensure a safe and navigable Ettalong Channel after the emergency dredging has been completed?”
