Community response to town centre plan

AN informative meeting was held last week explaining the Draft Woolgoolga Town Centre Master Plan.

The meeting was well attended by the Executive of the Chamber, members of the Northern Beaches Residents Association, local business owners and interested parties.

Sharon Smith, Local Panning Section Leader and Marcy Mills, Senior Planner/ Urban Designer| Sustainable Communities, Coffs Harbour City Council and the contracted developers who devised the plan were presenting.

Overall, the consensus from the meeting was that the plan was well thought out, providing more urban space and room for growth at the centre of town.

Suggestions for the legislated height of buildings to be lowered was well received.

There were some robust discussions over existing building heights and proposed street beautification.

The community were able to view the draft town plan when it was on display in an information booth last week at the corner of Beach Street and Younger Lane.

The draft is viewable on the Council website coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au until Friday, June 16.
