Rally organisers door knock proposed rally routes

Organisers of the Border Ranges Rally proposed for 13, 14 and 15 July this year have begun consulting with Kyogle district residents and property owners affected by proposed road closures.

Members of the Gold Coast Tweed Motorsporting Club (GCTMC) are doorknocking residents who live along the route of the proposed rally as well as affected side roads.

Lack of advance notification was identified by the community as an issue following the 2016 rally.

Council resolved after that rally that the GCTMC would have to submit a proposal for any future events to allow for consultation with affected property owners and residents before deciding whether or not to approve it.

In line with its push for greater community consultation, Council also plans to conduct a mail out to property owners and residents living along the proposed route.

Council will decide the fate of the proposed rally following the completion of the community consultation.

For further information about the proposed rally, contact Steve Davies of the GCTMC on 0457 328 179.
