Online forum for Kingscliff Park
AN online public forum will make it easy for the community to comment on concept plans for a new Kingscliff Central Park, according to Tweed Mayor Kevin Skinner.
Cr Skinner yesterday launched the plans for Marine Pde, saying the online forum would be part of a 35-day public exhibition period.
Under the proposal he said Kingscliff's Central Park would become a “community hub”.
“The Central Park will provide a vibrant public open space which links the beach with the town's central business district,” Cr Skinner said.
“It will be a centrepiece of the Kingscliff foreshore and a community hub for the town.
“It will serve as a venue for festivals and performances and a gathering place for locals and visitors to Marine Pde's shops and cafes.”
The Central Park is a major feature of the Kingscliff Foreshore Master Plan adopted by the council in July 2007 to guide it in planning.
Cr Skinner said residents and organisations had a week to find out about the Central Park concept plans – by visiting the On Exhibition page of Council's website www.tweed.nsw.gov.au – before the online forum gets under way.
Fact sheets on the Central Park and master plan are also available at Council's offices at Tweed Heads and Murwillumbah and libraries.
