Council seeks to adopt sports plan

YEARS of planning, consultation and examination of wish lists are behind a document that will hit the table tonight when Coffs Harbour City Council seeks approval to adopt the Draft Sports Facility Plan 2010, with revisions.

While the report was on public exhibition from March 25 until June 4 this year, 133 submissions were received by the council.

However, a poll conducted among Coffs Coast Advocate sporting contacts in recent weeks revealed no more than a handful had bothered to examine the document.

Several more thought their club office-bearers had “probably” considered the plan, while the overwhelming majority had little or no knowledge of the report’s existence.

This is despite the council holding two rounds of formal talks with the 12 key sports under scrutiny, publication of the report some time ago on the council website and ongoing community debate of specific inter-lapping issues, such as the draft plan for future use of Brelsford Park, among many venues considered.
