Letter to the Editor - October 18: Green space overrun
SANDY Shores - if this is such a sensitive site why doesn't the council step in and use its political powers to persuade the State Government to purchase the land and rezone it?
I have been blessed with the opportunity to live in Coffs for 30 years and in that time population and development has grown.
Who could blame anyone for wanting to live in this area? However one of my major concerns is as more and more people move here and build in new estates the developers and council are not providing any more green space for people to enjoy their holidays or weekends and the current areas a so overcrowded, even more so during holiday periods.
I live in Moonee and the reserve during summer is so overrun there are cars gridlocked, people basically sitting on top of each other when it is at full capacity.
Hearnes Lake represents everything Moonee has. Maybe the town planners needs to open their eyes and actually pick up the ball and get proactive in this town's future.
Entertainment centre or green space - which one is going to be more beneficial?
