CLARENCE Valley Council appears to have hit a dead end in relation to providing the 109 car parking spaces required in Maclean as a result of the $2.5m IGA Supermarket site sale.

Council officers have flagged that it may be necessary to take up to 30% of the green space in Cameron Park (1600sq m) in order to meet the commitment and estimate the provision of the additional car parks will cost $761,000 or $7247 per space.

In the business papers for the council's Civil and Corporate Committee meeting, to be held this afternoon in Grafton, deputy general manager Rob Donges said the council could "compensate" Maclean for the loss of green space by developing a new prime waterfront public park at the rear of Maclean Hotel.

The report said the council had appointed a real estate consultant to attempt to negotiate the sale of nearby land for car parking spaces. The results of this report were in a confidential attachment.

The report acknowledged that placing car parks on the green space was contrary to CVC's September 2011 resolution to preserve it.
