TWEED Shire Council has given a green light to putting the planned reconfiguration of Marine Pde on public display.

Tweed mayor Barry Longland said the reconfiguration of Marine Pde received unanimous support from the businesses through the Kingscliff Chamber of Commerce.

"The chamber put up a similar plan themselves," Cr Longland said.

According to a report delivered to councillors on Tuesday, the foreshore plan received overwhelming support at 70% approval.

"The lack of car parking in Marine Pde and the current state of the Marine Pde streetscape were identified as major concerns that need to be addressed as design of the Kingscliff Central Park proceeds," the reports stated.

"Public car parking in Kingscliff has been an issue within the local community for some time.

"Council has previously considered reports on this issue at its meetings on November 21, 2001 and May 7, 2003."

The plan includes making Marine Pde one way from Turnock St to Seaview St.

Councillor Kevin Skinner said in the council meeting that he hoped the Kingscliff foreshore plan would not be given priority over the Chinderah foreshore development that was finalised but unfunded.
