Council to discuss Holiday Park entry
A REPORT investigating a turning bay on Wharf St in Woolgoolga will be presented to Coffs Harbour City Council at tonight's council meeting.
The turning bay is an option being explored by the council in relation to the proposed relocation of the Woolgoolga Beach Holiday Park entrance.
At the last meeting, the council focused on the relocation of the entrance to Wharf St and retain the exit on Beach St via turn left only, enabling vans to drive a short distance along Beach St into Queen St to avoid the CBD.
When on exhibition in February, a total of 144 submissions were made to the council about the proposal, with 84 submissions received for the proposal and 60 submissions against.
Cr John Arkan said during a second consultation period further submissions were received, all against the proposal.
"In excess of 190 submissions received were against moving the holiday park entrance ... opposed to just 84 submissions which supported moving it."
Woolgoolga SLS captain, Les Pepper, hit back at Cr Arkan and said he hoped that the council would move forward with the original plan.
"I'd like to see the old system where they were going to go in and out of Wharf St without a roundabout, without anything else and go back to the original plan because I don't think there's any problem with queuing," Mr Pepper said.
