People flock to forum
AN online forum being run by Tweed Shire Council to gather views about plans for a revamped beachfront park in Kingscliff has attracted a wide range of comments.
But council staff say the forum is about fine-tuning the design of the park to ensure it has the facilities the community wants rather than arguing about the concept, which dates back years.
So far the opinions expressed on the website have ranged from comments on car-parking problems in Kingscliff to dissatisfaction with the decision to reduce the size of the foreshore caravan park.
One resident suggested “another storey or two or three onto the shopping car park area at Woolies”
“This would be great, provide some undercover parking and make shopping easier for all, plus being one street back from Marine Pde it would also provide extra parking space to use the restaurants, shops or parkland and help provide extra parking when the surf and sporting carnivals (are held).”
Another person: “As a regular (not permanent) visitor to the caravan park I am disappointed to learn that I will find it hard to get a site to camp.
“Surely the retailers, restaurants etc must be unhappy with the reduction in visitors this venture will have on them.”
Tweed Shire Council senior design engineer Warren Boyd said the forum was “about fine-tuning the design”.
