Public submissions heard
COFFS Harbour City councillors evaluated public submissions on the proposed relocation of the Woolgoolga Beach Holiday Park entrance from Beach St to Wharf St at Thursday night's meeting.
The council called for public feedback on its updated Woolgoolga Town Centre Masterplan, which is being assessed alongside the Woolgoolga Beach Reserve Plan of Management.
In addition to moving the holiday park entrance, other improvements outlined in the proposal include constructing new public amenities, new paths and upgrading the existing playground.
Prior to the meeting, Northern Beaches councillor John Arkan asked fellow councillors to really consider the concerns put forward in the public submissions.
"I'm hoping councillors take heed of the exhibition of the plan," Cr Arkan said.
"In excess of 190 submissions received were against moving the holiday park entrance.
"This is opposed to just 80 submissions which supported moving it."
Cr Arkan also said that instead of building all-new amenities, the council should focus on salvaging and upgrading those already in place.
Another key concern for locals is the proposed loss of 12 parking spaces in Wharf St.
