Coffs Coast Outlook has obtained the official Government response letter pertaining to the 15,000 signature petition on the proposed new Cultural Centre/New Council Chambers in Gordon Street.
It is from the Minister of Local Government, Shelly Hancock, (pictured below) and it is reproduced in full below for our readers.
On other matters relating to the proposed Civic Centre/Council Chambers Outlook understands that as of around 10.00 a.m. this morning a total of 591 objections to the DA for this project had been received.
The close off time/date for objections is 1.00 p.m. (13.00 hrs) next Tuesday 29 October. Drop them off at the administration desk at Park Beach Plaza or go to www.planningportal.nsw.gov.au/major-projects/project/11361…
It is extremely important though that each formal objection submitted should include at least one personalised sentence of some sort.
Next week once the Hansard reports are made public about the debate in State Parliament over the petition yesterday we will publish the arguments put forward by Coffs Harbour MP, Gurmesh Singh ,and also by the Opposition spokesperson on Local Government, Greg Warren (pictured below).
