Consultation has concluded


The Atherton Drive precinct, Urunga is under the management of the Bellinger Heads State Park Trust, which is jointly administered by both the NSW Department of Industry - Lands (DI-Lands) and Bellingen Shire Council.

DI-Lands together with Bellingen Shire Council require a Master Plan to guide the future use, development and management of the Atherton Drive foreshore. The area currently consists of informal public recreational area with native vegetation and limited facilities, a number of boathouses, a scout hall and a sailing club.

The aim of the Master Plan is to increase public foreshore access and enhance public recreation opportunities. The main issues for consideration include improving public access to the foreshore, uncontrolled vehicle access along the foreshore impacting an endangered ecological community, future of the remaining boathouses and unauthorised campervan camping.
