Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser said a community display office for the Coffs Harbour bypass project will open on Monday, 19 November, in the Coffs Harbour CBD.
“Members of the public are welcome to drop in to the office at 11a Park Avenue, where staff will be available to answer questions and discuss feedback,” Mr Fraser said.
“The display centre will be open from 10am – 4pm Monday to Thursday, while members of the project team are also available by appointment outside of these hours.
“This comes after the extension of the preferred concept design consultation period to Friday 30 November, to allow members of the community more time to have their say.
“Plans for the Pacific Highway bypass of Coffs Harbour have been open for consultation since 24 September.
“Three community feedback sessions were held, during which Roads and Maritime Services received between 500 and 600 visits from the community.
“To enable the conversation to continue, Roads and Maritime is now opening this community display office.
“The project team will also hold three information displays before the preferred concept design submission period closes on 30 November.”
On 15 November (today) and 26 November the team will be at Coffs Central, while on 21 November the team will be at Park Beach Plaza.
Mr Fraser said in response to community feedback the consultation period on the Environmental Impact Statement will now take place in 2019.
“Roads and Maritime is reviewing the feedback received to date and will continue to keep the community updated as the project progresses,” Mr Fraser said.
“We thank the community for their submissions and appreciate their willingness to work with Roads and Maritime to find the best design solution for the project.”
