'Koala' deadline extended

THE public consultation period for the contentious ‘koala corridors’ – along with two other major draft planning strategies – has been extended by Coffs Harbour City Council.

Submissions on the Coffs Harbour Priority Habitats and Corridors Strategy 2010-2030, the draft Coffs Harbour Revised Koala Plan of Management (KPoM) and the draft Employment Lands Strategy will now close March 14.

“Each of these strategies are going to have an important bearing on the future direction of the Coffs Harbour local government area and we’re very keen to see as much community input as possible into these documents,” said Mark Salter, Council’s Director of Land Use, Health and Development.

Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser said he was extremely pleased that Council had listened to the concerns of the residents who attended the NSW Farmers meeting held at Nana Glen on February 9.

“I urge all property owners and primary producers affected by this Strategy to obtain a copy of it from Coffs Harbour City Council and make a submission to Council,” he said.
