Have your say on the future of Kempsey Regional Saleyards

Kempsey Regional Saleyards

Council is inviting the community to comment on options for the future management and ownership of Kempsey Regional Saleyards.

At the June Council meeting, Councillors considered a report outlining five strategic options for the facility and voted to place them on public exhibition until 23 August 2019.

The Kempsey Regional Saleyards Strategic Options Paper, now available for viewing and feedback on Your Say Macleay, outlines five scenarios including maintaining the status quo, upgrading, leasing or selling the saleyards, or building a new facility.

Visit Your Say Macleay online at https://yoursay.macleay.nsw.gov.au/saleyards  to provide your feedback.

Council’s existing Alcohol Free Zones expire this year and areas being proposed for renewal of a further four years are:

  • Greenhill residential area,
  • West Kempsey CBD,
  • West Kempsey residential area,
  • Kempsey CBD,
  • South Kempsey residential area,
  • Crescent Head CBD,
  • Smithtown residential area,
  • South West Rocks CBD, and
  • Hat Head (special events).

A copy of the Alcohol Free Zone maps and detailed information are available at Council’s Customer Service Centre or on Council’s community engagement site https://yoursay.macleay.nsw.gov.au/alcohol-free-zone-renewal 

Feedback needs to be in writing and addressed to the General Manager via post to PO Box 3078 West Kempsey, NSW 2440, via email to ksc@kempsey.nsw.gov.au or online at Your Say Macleay.

Submissions close Friday 30 August 2019 with recommendations due to be reported to the September meeting of Council.
