    Would like to see more trees in Yamba (not Norfolk pines) for shade along the streets, especially along Yamba Road.

    I see a lot of stray dogs on weekends and there is no telephone number to contact the Rangers or the Animal Shelter - I would like to see an after hours number for stray dogs so the Rangers may capture them when they are seen, rather than waiting until Monday when the lost dog would be totally lost, killed by traffic, etc.

    Iluka is mostly ignored by Council, gardens in street not cared for, roads falling apart and gutters blocked up with sand. Streets are dirty, trees not trimed and footpaths not mowed properly.

    1. Annual electrical / mechanical goods kerbside clean-up. (TVs, fridges, freezers, small household appliances, mowers, etc). People have these things cluttering up their garages and spare rooms. Little things inappropriately get put in the red bins. The amount of this stuff that gets put out on the annual clean-up (despite it saying they won't be collected) indicates the need. Now digital TV is in, many households have at least 1 old TV to get rid of.

    2. Put electricity and phone services underground. The old poles are an eyesore and attract white ants. There would also be less power outages after storms.

    The flood levees must have urgent attention: build brushgroves and raise Graftons'.

    1. The poor maintenance of many town roads should be overcome.
    2. The lack of specialist medical facilities need to be addressed, particularly in the lower clarence.
    3. While Council tradesman are productive, the general labour force is soon to be slack, unsupervised and low in productivity.

    Provide more trees in local parks, not ones that will drop too much sap or attract bats. Bat control near the school and local homes, it is unbelievable that the children are made put up with the mess and smell let alone the neighbouring homes!
    When planning new buildings or developments make them look subtle and not so out there!

    South Grafton is not working. It has lots of vandalism, shop keepers often incur damage and theft, thus there are vacant shops.
    There are many drunk people, it is a beautiful heritage town spoilt by drunk people, their rubbish and their violence. Kids and teenagers should be in school, tafe or working not just on the street.

    We know the refuse transfer station and the kids’ skatepark is in the pipeline. Emphasis should now be on getting walkway/bikeways in Iluka village central and along the bay to the beach.

    • More trees in the streetscape of Iluka – for shade in summer, more ambience, habitat and shelter for the birds (climate and warmer weather necessitate this).
    • The rubbish dumping problem – massive drops of peoples unwanted “e-waste” and garden rubbish on bush tracks; also the prevalence of peoples drink cans, coffee cups, cigarette packets, alcohol bottles seriously just dropped out of car windows and school kids rubbish just dropped in the street or bush. More awareness of unacceptability of this! Dirt boy and dirt girl speaking out against this. The plastic rubbish problem – incentives for kids to not let this into our oceans and adults for that matter.
    • Have Council environment officer visiting schools to talk about how our rubbish is incompatible with our wildlife, to educate how plastic in our waterways and ocean chokes our marine life and bird life and how the rings around bottle necks to be cut and removed so animals don’t get caught in them (by growing larger eventually choke to death). Also not leave drink bottles and cans around – lizards climb in and can’t get out – they die in there.

    Restore and clean up area (old quarry) down behind Yamba lighthouse. Fix the "zigzag" to Main Beach - appalling condition!

    1. Yes, large pot-holes in the roads... when they are filled they break open almost immediately!
    2. Footpaths are desperately required!
    3. Kerb and channelling needed.
    4. Barking dogs are a pain!
    5. Better street lighting.

    It is necessary for some means to be found to fund and maintain basic services for the existing and newer members of the community.

    Build up a larger community able to assist in funding public works - such as roads, drainage and public amenities including maintenance.

    Play equipment for children and toddlers that is up kept. Townsend needs a suitable area for children to play and families to meet. The current facilities are broken rubbish.

    Access to the river running through the CBD of Maclean is under utilised. Most vistors driving through don't see it because buildings (some are quite ugly) which hide it from view. If this area was developed it would be a draw card for both tourists and locals to enjoy and in turn enhance the economy. My "vision" - a place to walk, eat, sit and relax.

    Angourie has very poor wheelchair/pram access - the 'green' pathways (Green Point) don't work for above.

    Rethink smelly red bin over peak times in tourist areas (they stink!!!) Offer a 'smelly' bin dump (in dumpster bin) in each community ie. near park areas, ground - soccer fields.
