MidCoast Council’s ordinary meeting will be held as scheduled this Wednesday, 28 July, with special provisions for Councillors to attend remotely given the current COVID-19 restrictions in NSW.

Members of the public will be able to view the meeting from 2pm via livestream through a weblink, accessible on Council’s website on Wednesday morning.

Those interested are still permitted to attend in person, however social distancing requirements means numbers are capped at 25 in line with the current Public Health Order, and Councillors may choose to attend remotely.

The meeting is set to consider the adoption of several guiding documents including a Biodiversity Framework, Greening Strategy and a catchment management plan for the Manning River.

Councillors will also be asked to consider a vegetation management policy, urban land release strategy and a concept plan for the Wingham central business district.

Registration to attend the meeting in person must be made before 12pm Tuesday 27 July. To register, complete the registration form on Council’s website, or call 7955 7777.

A shuttle service from out the front of the MidCoast Council Library in Victoria Street, Taree will operate for those who are registered to attend and require transport.
