CORAMBA'S long-running laneway issue was laid to rest in seconds with a unanimous vote at Coffs Harbour City Council's meeting on Thursday.
Closing the lid on the issue now rests with the Land and Property Management Authority (LPMA).
The councillors voted to apply to the LPMA to close the section of the lane behind No 18 and No 16 Thrower Ave and, if approved, to classify it as operational land under the Local Government Act.
The owners of adjoining properties will be notified and a report will be brought back to council after the application is determined by the LPMA.
The land in question is the dead end of a laneway running behind properties in Gale St and Thrower Ave. It has never been available to the public.
