Central Park in Kingscliff to get new name

THE community will have the chance to suggest a new name for Central Park at the new Kingscliff foreshore redevelopment.

Tweed Shire Council unanimously supported Councillor Warren Polglase's request on Thursday to reconsider the title of the park to a more appropriate name that better fits the character of the seaside village.

Cr Polglase, who ran an online poll on the issue, said there was plenty of public support for changing the park's name.

"It's their community, it's their foreshore and they want to have ownership of it,” Cr Polglase said during Thursday's council meeting.

A report explained the costs to replace the sign along Marine Pde with an alternative name would be up to $10,000.

"The $10,000 is the upper end of what we need,” Cr Polglase said.

"If we're spending $20million odd then we need to get a proper name for Kingscliff.”
