Locals show up in numbers to have their say on future of Chinderah
One hundred and forty people representing long-term residents, business owners, regular visitors, local Aboriginal and South Sea Islander communities and community groups attended two Community Conversations at Cudgen Leagues Club recently to share their vision for the future of their local area.
“We just think that it is good that the Council has brought us all together to discuss this subject and hope that we are all listened to and our views acted upon,” said one attendee.
Vince Connell, Director Planning and Regulation said it was important that the community’s vision for the future of Chinderah was central to Council’s decision-making about how Chinderah changes over time.
“Council is committed to making decisions in partnership with the community and these Community Conversations were the first step in that process,” Mr Connell said.
The feedback received from the Community Conversations will help Council create a shared community vision for the future of Chinderah to guide development of the Chinderah Locality Plan.
“The Locality Plan will combine the community vision with analysis, objectives and actions that will guide future decision making about the improvement of public spaces, infrastructure and how land in Chinderah can be used. It will help ensure the community’s vision for Chinderah is achieved over the coming years.”
These Community Conversations were the first step in developing the Chinderah Locality Plan.To view the community feedback from the Community Conversations and to have your say visit www.yoursaytweed.com.au/FutureofChinderah
