    Contributed by hard copy:The Induna Churchill ship sunk at the edge of the Clarence bridge. I think it's time to raise it and give it a coat of All Rust and display it out of flood on the banks of the Clarence. A good tourist photo opportunity.

    Contributed by hard copy:Buy 4 house blocks in centre of town and create a cedar rain forest as a tourist attraction. You could also keep miniature donkeys there for the kids. We can do so much more for the town with a bit of imagination. Woodcraft exhibition at tourist centre with all red cedar products on show.

    Our CBD should have wifi connection so that this can be mentioned in visitor guides to attract tourists into our city centres. This is becoming a trend in many places.

    Contributed by hard copy:All actual ratepayers in the city should have free access to the swimming facilities of the towns. Plus they should have free access to town refuse facilities.

    Comment contributed by hard copy. 1. Maintain existing infrastructure before new projects, we build things and then neglect them too often, consultants are a waste of money.2. Dont force development, natural growth is far more economic in the long run and reduces financial pressure on Council and ratepayers.3. With a low $35,000 income per dwelling, Council needs a low land, sewerage, garbage rating policy as customer care.

    Comment contributed by hard copy. My concerns are for employment opportunities in the Clarence.- Plunge cultural material is great. More resourcing for education/culture and learning please!- More staffing at the lower river Libraries is a must.

    Comment contributed by hard copy:- Clarence could and should be one of NSW and Australia’s food bowls this encourages productivity, jobs, tourism, pride etc etc.It must be clean and sustainable though otherwise it’s backward.- There are a lot of overweight people in the Clarence, which as we are aware leads to ill health more needs to be done to get people to take responsibility for their health and well being.

    Comment contributed by hard copyRetirees eventually become single, needing smaller homes to look after. A small home scheme, raised to escape flooding is desirable but doesn’t handle the gofers (mobility scooters) and steps. It would be brilliant if someone could come up with the answers to this.Additional Comments:I like the way the Clarence Valley Council request consultation.

    Comment contributed by hard copyMaclean Main Street needs to look at its heritage status. The shop fronts all need to follow the same heritage vibe and a coat of paint would help.

    Comment contributed by hard copy:Yamba - tourism needs to be continually be encouraged by making area attractive - area grassed north of Surf Club very dirty messy and unaesthetic, also 'zig zag' to beach.

    Comment contributed by hard copy:* Too many trees have been cut down over the past 18 months. Stop now!* A fenced clean swimming area in the river at Maclean would be wonderful.

    I believe that one of the most appropriate actions that could be taken to improve the economic future of the Clarence valley, and Yamba in particular, would be to improve the management of the coastal vegetation. In addition, steps could be taken to build on this most desirable action, by building some aesthetically designed viewing platforms on the north east edge of Pilot Hill, overlooking the ocean at Yamba, similar to that installed adjacent to Taking Point lighthouse at Port Macquarie.

    Comment contributed by hard copy.The planning must be executed to form a platform for development into the long term - ten years is only the infancy for the region.
