No decision yet on coastal subdivision

Posted April 8, 2010 14:08:00

The New South Wales Government has moved to clarify information about a contentious coastal subdivision east of Kempsey.

The Goolawah Estate at Crescent Head is a five stage development, first approved in 1990.

The first two stages have been developed and sold.

Environmental activist John Jeayes is concerned about stages three to five as the areas have been gazetted as an endangered ecological community.

He says the State Government is going ahead with the development despite this.

But a spokesman for the Minister for Lands, Tony Kelly, says a final decision has not been made.

Mr Kelly says the Land and Property Management Authority has been consulting widely on the issue.

He says investigations are underway into how development can proceed, taking into account the endangered species and environmental issues.
