Last chance to comment on Lismore Park

People have until next Thursday, November 30, to make a submission on Lismore City Councils Draft Plan of Management for Lismore Park.

The Draft Plan of Management includes a proposal to lock Crozier Field during the day going directly against a promise made in 1998 to local residents that it would remain open for community use.

People have seven days left to urge councillors to reverse this ridiculous proposal, said Lismore resident Peter Bellew, who spear-headed a campaign against its closure. This is an integral part of Lismores parkland and it should be kept open for the public. This is a community asset and should remain in community hands for that to happen people need to speak out.

The Draft Plan also includes a list of possible works for the area, including floodlighting for Crozier Field, turning the Continental Bocce Club into a community and youth facility, and relocating the Lismore Tourist Caravan Park.

The Lismore Park Draft Plan of Management is on display at Councils Goonellabah and CBD offices.
