Fishermen co-op site rejected

A PLAN to redevelop the Clarence River Fishermen's Co-operative site was rejected by Clarence Valley Council on Tuesday.

Two new single-storey buildings and a two-storey building designed for retail activities were part of the plan.

The council's deputy general manager environmental and economic Des Schroder recommended the application be refused for three main reasons:

  • The introduction of new retail uses not associated with the fishing industry conflicts with the intent of site's dual zoning (5a special uses and 2a residential).
  • The proposal is about a kilometre north of the Maclean CBD and therefore conflicts with several local and regional planning documents.
  • The redevelopment does not accord with heritage provisions of the Maclean Heritage Conservation Area.
