Draft Connell Park Plan of Management

Submissions closing on 08 June 2023, 05:00 PM


Following Council's April meeting, the Draft Connell Park Plan of Management was endorsed. Thank you to those who participated in the consultation of the Draft Plan.

Bellingen Shire Council is seeking community feedback on the Draft Plan of Management for Connell Park, Bellingen. The Plan has been developed in consultation with the S355 Bellingen Connell Park Management Committee and will guide how the park may be used, managed and improved. Its main purpose is to ensure that any future works within the park are consistent with the overall vision for the park. It will provide direction for the use and development of the park for both Council and the community into the future.

Community consultation is a vital part of the planning process, and your contribution is welcomed.

Please review the Draft Plan of Management and leave your comments prior to the consultation period closing on 8 June 2023.

Once adopted, the document will replace Council’s existing Plan of Management.
