  • The need for extension of Yaccaba Street to connect with the foreshore as a two (2) way    configuration.
  • The strong need to upgrade the town presentation. The CBD needs rejuvenation and        activation
  • The need to review and upgrade traffic management at the Donald Street and Stockton Street intersection following the opening of the Woolworths supermarket
  • Need for long term planning (and implementation) for the Nelson Bay CBD
