Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Exhibition has concluded

Historically, Council has received requests to seal isolated sections of existing unsealed (gravel) roads within the Shire. Previous requests have on occasion included an offer from residents to contribute financially toward the cost of a bitumen seal.

In consideration of such requests, a report was submitted to Council for its consideration on 2 May 2018, where it resolved that a Policy be developed to allow for Council to accept voluntary monetary contributions from residents/ratepayers, to self-fund the sealing of unsealed (gravel) roads.

The draft Policy has been prepared and Council is now seeking your feedback.

Submissions will be received from Monday 16 November 2020 until 4:30 pm on Wednesday 16 December 2020. All submissions are to include the reference Submission - Draft Contribution for Sealing of Unsealed (Gravel) Roads Policy.

Emailed submissions are preferred, and should be directed to council@bellingen.nsw.gov.au. Alternatively, written submissions can be sent to the attention of The General Manager, Bellingen Shire Council, PO Box 117, BELLINGEN NSW 2454.

If you have any questions, or wish to discuss the Draft Policy further, please contact Councils' Manager Infrastructure Services, Mr John Fyfe, on (02) 6655 7300.
