Consultation has now closed. We are currently reviewing the feedback submitted, which will help Council staff form a recommendation to the elected Council, which will then vote on the matter. Ultimately, the decision rests with the NSW Government’s Geographical Names Board (GNB).

Council is planning to undertake improvement works around Coon Island and Coon Island Point in 2021-2022.

As we plan for these improvements it is appropriate that we also consider community sentiment around the name given it is considered offensive by parts of our community.
