Woolgoolga's modern vision

PLANNING for Woolgoolga needs to be controlled by a total vision document, according to the Woolgoolga and Northern Beaches Chamber of Commerce.

In their submission to the recent draft employment lands strategy, the chamber of commerce has requested that a new holistic master plan document be prepared for the area.

The previous master plan is 14 years old and does not take into account recent changes in Woolgoolga including the highway bypass, new residential land releases and economic changes within the local community.

A new master plan was first mooted publicly at the recent business and employment development workshop which was attended by both business owners and residents. There was an overwhelming majority who supported the plan.

Past chamber president, Greg Ray, is continuing to spearhead the chamber’s submission on the ELS.

“It is everyone’s wish to maintain Woolgoolga’s sense of place and to protect and enhance its inherent seaside character,” he said.
