A LOCAL landmark was toppled this week to make way for a new vehicle storage facility in Toormina.

The cement silo at what was the Monier roof tile factory on Newcastle Dr has been a landmark for travellers flying into Coffs Harbour for about 30 years but on Wednesday its time had come.

The silo was removed as part of the refurbishment of the factory and site for a new business venture, Coffs RV Storage.

Fitted with innovative security systems, the facility will offer secure storage for recreational vehicles such as caravans, motor homes, fifth wheelers, boats, trailers and motor vehicles.

The site now includes an 18,000sq m all-concrete base facility with two carports storing up to 80 vehicles undercover and a yard for outdoor storage.

In addition, the facility has more than 2000sq m of inside space.

General servicing of vehicles will be carried out by a qualified mechanic in a licensed mechanical repair workshop.
