Have say on Sports Facility Plan
RESIDENTS in the Coffs Harbour City Council area have just over a fortnight to have their say on the draft Sports Facility Plan for the city.
Due to the high level of public interest, the council has extended the public exhibition of the draft plan until Friday, June 4.
“We’re hoping that by extending the public consultation time, more people will take the opportunity to take a look at the whole draft Strategy – and the draft Sports Facility Plan – so that we get as much feedback as possible,” acting director of City Services Jenny Eakins said.
Public exhibition of the draft Open Space Strategy will also close on June 4.
“Clearly, these proposals have generated a great deal of concern, which we expect to see reflected in the submissions,” Ms Eakins said.
“The purpose of putting draft strategies and plans out for consultation is to be able to hear the community’s views. We’re keen to know what people think of the draft Strategy as a whole and are urging as many people as possible to take a look at the documents.”
Copies of both strategies are displayed at council’s administrative building, libraries and also in the general stores at Nana Glen, Coramba, Ulong and Corindi.
