Chamber backs foreshore plan
THE Kingscliff Chamber of Commerce has announced its support of plans to rejuvenate the town's foreshore, excited at the prospect of extra parking.
Chamber president Dennis Eyre said the chamber was shown plans by Tweed Shire Council engineers that aligned with their desire to slow traffic on Marine Pde and increasing parking for residents and tourists.
Under the proposal, which will go on public display, a section of Marine Pde between the Seaview St roundabout and the Turnock St intersection will become one-way, creating room for existing parallel parking to become angle parking.
"We're very enthusiastic and in support of extra parking and traffic calming," Mr Eyre said.
"Reducing it to one lane will give us 60 additional parking spaces.
"It would be safer, pedestrian friendly and the beautification of the area will be great too."
Tweed Shire Council gave the foreshore plans the green light at a council meeting this week.
