The purpose of this report is to request Council and LTC support for the temporary closure of a portion of Coopers Shoot Rd in Hayters Hill, associated with an event in November 2020.

The closure of Coopers Shoot Road and Bangalow Road will be on different days to avoid any conflict.  The snippet below gives a summary of where the Coopers Shoot Rd closure is proposed



A TMP has been submitted (and is attached) which covers both the Bangalow Rd and Coopers Shoot Rd and confirms no conflict and proposed TCP’s.  Adequate traffic control and consideration has been given to ensure safety and local access during the proposed temporary closures.
