As the Inverell Shire Council prepares to undertake a million dollar bicycle and walking path at Lake Inverell, they are seeking local residents’ opinions on the impact of the project.
Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall joined deputy mayor Anthony Michael in announcing the off-road cycle and walkway, alongside the construction of a pontoon, viewing platform and boardwalk for kayakers. Both projects are jointly funded by the state government and council, and together will cost $2.2 million.
Following Part 5 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, the Inverell council is now undertaking a review of the off-road recreational path, and is inviting shire residents’ input. .
The council says the circuit is intended to be an adaptable public facility, providing a safe off-road environment that can be enjoyed by many groups for a broad range of activities, including walking, cycling, school sporting activities such as cross country and walk-a-thons, and training circuits and obstacles for fitness.
Anyone wishing to know more or provide comment about the Inverell Off-Road Recreation Circuit proposal are encouraged to contact the council by phoning the Civil and Environmental Services Department on (02) 6728 8200.
Written comments will be received up until 4.30 pm, October 16 and can be submitted by: Post to the General Manager, PO Box 138, Inverell NSW 2360. Email your views to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the council website to make an online submisson.
