3 March 2015 Corindi Receives Further Community Improvements

Upgrades to the Corindi tennis court complex and a new shared footpath/cycleway along Red Rock Road have been given the go-ahead by Coffs Harbour City Council.

“We’ve been steadily working through a wish-list of new and improved community facilities for the people of Corindi and I’m really pleased to be able to say that we are now in a position to start work on the latest projects,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.

“As always, it’s a case of when funds will allow and, in this case, it’s through grants from NSW Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) and developer contributions collected from the sub-divisions in Corindi that have allowed us to move forward.”

The proposed tennis court improvements include the reconstruction of the existing tennis court opposite the Corindi General Store, to create a new, joint tennis court and half-court basketball space. The project also includes drainage, fencing, shade shelter, seating and landscaping. These works are estimated to cost $229,000.

Council has also recently received a grant of $320,000 from the RMS – which requires a contribution of $211,000 from Council - to build Stage 1 of an off-road shared path/cycleway along Red Rock Road from Corindi Primary School to the Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre and then on-road towards the southern boundary of Yuraygir National Park.

Council is to use $211,000 funds from Section 94 developer contributions collected from local sub-divisions. These contributions are collected so that new community facilities and amenities can be built or upgraded for the growing population in a particular area.

Council has been working closely with the Corindi and Red Rock communities to establish new and improved facilities since the villages became part of the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area in 2004.

Since that time, Council has provided a number of new facilities in the locality including:

·         Construction of a skate park;

·         Construction of playground and landscaping in Niland Street reserve; and

·         Construction of a shared footpath/cycleway along the entire length of the Pacific Street circuit of the village.

Work is currently being scheduled for the projects to be completed by August 2015.
