Survey to find supermarket site
THE Maclean Chamber of Commerce is surveying all local businesses in an effort to counter Clarence Valley Council concerns about community attitude to the Centenary Drive supermarket proposal. According to acting president Simon Willmore the survey should give the chamber and subsequently the council data, on who wants what and where. “As a result of the ongoing meetings with the Chamber’s supermarket sub-committee, it became apparent that council has concerns the business community may not want the car park option to go ahead,” Mr Willmore said. “We think the survey will once and for all settle the argument as to the positioning of any new supermarket. “The whole process of a new supermarket for Maclean has now been underway for more than four years and frankly we have had enough. “It is time for a decision to be made. “We are encouraged that council have addressed this issue and are working for an April May completion date.” The survey will be emailed to all Maclean businesses over the next few days. A simple listing of the four remaining options and the opportunity to vote on each one, from one to four should be returned to the chamber as soon as possible.
