PS Council Planners given the message about High-Rise in Nelson Bay CBD at TRRA Meeting 21 Feb 2017

A TRRA meeting addressed by PSC Town Planners was attended by over 200 ratepayers, two East Ward Councillors and local media last night (Tuesday 21 Feb 2017) at the Nelson Bay Bowling Club. The topic on everybody’s mind was the Council’s review of the Nelson Bay Town and Foreshore Strategy. The view expressed by the Mayor and the Group Manager, Commercial services in the local press, that removing restrictions on building heights would attract more developers to the area, based on a perception that this would revitalize the town was comprehensively rejected by the many speakers from the floor…… Press Release and. Link to TRRA Position Paper below.
