Urunga anger at proposal

OVER 250 residents gathered at Urunga Bowling Club on Tuesday to express concerns about a proposal to remove the car park and vehicular access to the Urunga Lagoon and Boardwalk area.

The proposal is incorporated in the draft management strategy for the Morgo Street Reserve recently released for community comment by the NSW Department of Lands. Resident Frank Riley said everyone was united in their concern about the loss of access to the foreshore area.

"We formed a committee and will now be taking further action," Mr Riley said.

"We will be sending submissions to both the Department of Lands and the minister in Sydney."

Publicity officer for the newly-formed Foreshore Action Group, Cherie Hartwig, said getting the extension was important.

"Then we can work out what we want to do," Ms Hartwig said.
