Kingscliff wants car park priority
KINGSCLIFF residents have spoken up about concept plans for the Kingscliff Central Park, demanding additional car-parking facilities.
An online community forum received so many comments requesting additional parking, Tweed Shire Council has extended the forum for another fortnight to allow for further investigation into a partially underground car park.
Mayor Kevin Skinner said the possibility of an underground car park had been considered, but was dependent on availability of funding.
“The partially underground car park provides a clever solution to the conflicting demands of additional parking while protecting foreshore parkland, and had been earmarked for possible later inclusion once funds became available,” Cr Skinner said.
Tweed Shire Council will discuss nominating Kingscliff Central Park as its top priority for funding through the Regional Development Australia Fund at its next meeting on Tuesday.
“The Central Park project is council’s best opportunity to take advantage of those federal funds and enables council to include the car park as part of the initial central park concept plans.”
