Council as Corporate Manager of
the Coffs Coast State Park have entered into a temporary license agreement for
an inflatable water park within the harbour, south of the Jetty structure.
The temporary licence runs until
the end of the April school holidays and provides an opportunity to gauge the impact
of the activity.
“Council has received several
recent expressions of interest for this type of activity with proposals ranging
from 6 months per year (spring- summer) to a semi-permanent year round
arrangement,” Said Jason Bailey Manager Holiday Parks & Reserves.
“With approval granted from all
relevant stakeholders including Department of Primary Industries, Crown Lands
and Roads and Maritime Services we will be able to assess if the trial is successful,
and potentially look to consider future options.”
Should the trial prove
successful, Council will consider going to open tender for future licenses to
operate similar activities.
