A DETERMINED group of concerned business people, led by Central Queensland construction heavyweight Geoff Murphy, will launch a campaign against deamalgamation, in Yeppoon today.

While representatives of the One Capricorn Region group declined to comment on the development late yesterday, The Morning Bulletin understands its members consist of a number of concerned businessmen and residents.

A Facebook page for the group begun yesterday had already received 40 likes in a short period.

The page described One Capricorn Region "as a group of passionate local voices standing for a united and strong single local government administration, not a costly deamalgamated fractured and divided region".

A large portion of the group is also believed to be made up of people based on the Capricorn Coast.

This move comes less than a week after deamalgamation supporter Councillor Bill Ludwig claimed that 80% of residents in the Livingstone Shire area would vote yes for deamalgamation.

 

One Capricorn Region will be officially launched at a press conference in Queen Street, Yeppoon at 11am today.

Mr will take on the role of group spokesperson.

He has been a vocal supporter of the benefits of an amalagamated council.

It is understood the group aims to provide information on the costs and implications of splitting the council while explaining the benefits of maintaining the status quo.
