Plan to restore faith in a name
TWEED Heads and Coolangatta business groups have been urgently called upon to restore the good name of Coolangatta by Connecting Southern Gold Coast general manager Jim Wilson.
Mr Wilson yesterday announced his intentions to develop a media communications plan.
“It seems that, from time to time, there is spillover into Coolangatta of the social problems from the Tweed and some parts of the Gold Coast,” Mr Wilson said.
“The facts are that the issue with which Coolangatta is confronted is no different from a lot of precincts in Australia, be they tourist destinations or otherwise.
“The southern Gold Coast has a population of about 20,000, so it is well and truly bearing the brunt of the adverse publicity and this is simply not fair on our businesses, our workers or our community.”
Mr Wilson said the plan would be aimed at the drive market of south-east Queensland and NSW.
