STILL TIME TO ‘HAVE YOUR SAY’ ON ACTION IN THE NORTHERN RIVERS REGION

North Coast Nationals MPs, Don Page, Geoff Provest, Thomas George & Chris Gulaptis, say time is running out for local residents to have their say on the Northern Rivers Regional Action Plan.

Since February the community has been urged to tell the NSW Government what goals it has for the Northern Rivers over the next decade.

“There is still time for residents, businesses and stakeholder groups to have their say on the changes they see as essential for the region,” the MP's said.

“The online consultation will continue until next Friday 18 May at http://haveyoursay.nsw.gov.au/nsw2021 - where residents can also view the draft Regional Action Plan.

“The Draft Plans follow 25 regional meetings held across the state and more than 3,500 contributions.

“The draft for the Northern Rivers incorporates feedback from the community meeting held at Ballina on 20 March with MP’s and Cabinet Ministers on the localised Action Plans that will align with NSW 2021 – the blueprint for change in NSW over the next decade.

“The NSW Liberals & Nationals are committed to giving people a real say in open, collaborative decision making for the long term development of our region,” the MP's said.

“We encourage residents, business and stakeholder groups to have their say about the future of the local region before the consultation process ends”.
