Property owner wants results

A TIRROAN woman says she is fed up with continuous investigations but no action by the former Department of Environment and Resource Management on her complaint.

She says the department has failed to provide satisfactory solutions to drainage issues affecting her 16ha rural property.

In February, a council-built wall designed to fix Rachael Mewburn's problem collapsed after heavy rain.

Ms Mewburn said the council had removed what was left of the wall from her property, but nothing else had been done to address her concerns.

"I've requested that DERM rectify the Soil Conservation Act and I've also asked for compensation for the damage, but so far I have not received a response," she said.

Randall Hart, south-east regional services director for the Department of Natural Resources and Mines (formerly DERM), said the department was seeking expert advice on requests from Ms Mewburn, including compensation, and would provide her with an answer in the near future.

"While storm water drainage on roads is the jurisdiction of local government, the department has been liaising closely with the Bundaberg Regional Council to resolve Ms Mewburn's concerns," Mr Hart said.
