The Citizens Voice group’s fight to pause the development of a Cultural and Civic Space in Coffs Harbour’s Gordon Street will be taken to the state’s Planning Minister, Rob Stokes tomorrow.
More than 700 letters will be sent to Mr Stokes (pictured below) tomorrow asking him to allow a full public hearing before the Independent Planning Commission into the $76.5 million dollar project before any DA is approved.
The roughly 730 letters don’t include any objections that may have been sent directly to the Minister via email or uploaded on the internet.
The Local Government Minister, Shelley Hancock has ruled out intervening to pause the council development, saying there’s no evidence the council breached its statutory obligations.

Tell us what you think – should the project be paused or allowed to go ahead as planned?
