IT IS economically selfish and not commonsense to leave Point Plomer Rd unsealed. The sealing of this important link for economic, social and medical benefit is well overdue.
For decades and when sand mining was prevalent there was a hopeful local expectation that in the rehabilitation process, Point Plomer Rd would be sealed.
Why would this community hopefulness now change?

A change of heart by a community can happen. It can also happen when ‘blow ins’ to an area advocate change for their own selfish reasoning, stagnating any and all development just to keep a place like Crescent Head as it was when they arrived.
Crescent Head lost out on the sand mining company rehabilitating the road to reward all then residents and business owners with a sealed connection to Port Macquarie and in more recent years the community also lost a doctor as a result of Point Plomer Rd not being sealed by KSC.
The commonsense necessary is for KSC to advance Crescent Head in all areas of civilised living providing opportunity to and for Crescent Head to sustainably contribute its fair share within the Macleay Valley economy.
To accept the status quo as is now being advocated by a solicited group is unacceptably selfish.
