THE Joint Regional Planning Panel has approved the State Government's development application to build a new justice precinct on the outskirts of Coffs Harbour's CBD

At a special meeting in Coffs Harbour, the five members of the panel heard submissions for a number of speakers both for and against the two storey police station and four storey courthouse on the northern corner of the Pacific Highway and Beryl Street.

Issues canvassed ranged from the potentially negative impact the relocation of the police station and court house out of the city centre would have on CBD businesses, the impact on the legal fraternity and the public, the unsuitability of the site with regards to access and  the impact on adjoining residents.

The panel was also told how desperate was the need to find a new home for the police station and court house which were variously described as grossly outdated.

They then voted unanimously to give the green light to the $50 million proposal subject to a number of conditions including the provision of an additional 93 car spaces on the western section of the site.
