Councillors advise how to protest

MORE than 250 people turned out to attend a rally to save open spaces in the Coffs Harbour local government area on Saturday.

The protest attracted a range of people to an out-of-the-way Park in Feran Crescent where councillors advised locals how to protest to the council.

“The fact that so many people turned up shows that people want their parks,” Save Our Space member Dave Fuller said.

The day focused on getting two messages across to attendees – making submissions and reminding people that signing a petition or a form letter only counts as one submission.

“People need to put pen to paper and get their submissions into council,” Mr Fuller said.

Coffs Harbour City councillors Bill Palmer, Rodney Deegans and Paul Templeton attended the meeting, as well as State Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser.

Cr Palmer and Cr Deegans spoke at some length, giving advice to listeners about how to make their voices heard when submitting their views to Coffs Harbour City Council.
