Updated: Mar 24, 2019
This weekend Peregian Beach Community Association celebrated 20-years on the front lines of the battle to protect the area’s environment and village scale.
About a hundred supporters packed the Peregian Beach Community House for the celebration on Sunday.
Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington acknowledged the PBCA’s decades of campaigning against over-development, and to protect the fragile coastal environment.
He said “such battles are never easy, and they can’t be fought without considerable cost.”
Cr Wellington paid tribute to “the effort, the time, the gnashing of teeth, the sleepless nights and the stress that the PBCA’s stalwarts have been able to endure on behalf of their community.”
