Residents have until 17th August 2022 to make comment to the local Shire regarding the proposal. Residents may do this through email to chris@shire.gov.cx or in writing to SOCI at PO Box 863, Christmas Island, WA 6798. They may also drop off written correspondence to the Shire’s front desk during office hours. A copy of the applicant’s rationale is viewable at www.shire.gov.cx and at the front desk. A copy of the application and this notice will be published in The Islander of this coming 29th July.
