Defence officials will hold one on one information appointments with local landholders to discuss the future expansion of the Shoalwater Bay military training ground north of Rockhampton.
Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry said the Australian Government has been progressing plans for the Australia-Singapore Comprehensive Strategic Partnership – which will see the expansion of the training ground along with troop numbers.
“Representatives from the Department of Defence will be in Marlborough to meet with landowners and leaseholders whose properties fall within the potential expansion zone of Shoalwater Bay,” Ms Landry said.
“It’s a long term process, but defence is keen to be open as possible, so that local property owners are fully aware of future plans for the area and have the opportunity to ask questions.”
The Department of Defence has sent information to relevant landholders inviting them to book a private appointment time in Marlborough from December 7 to 9.
