A water park, bicycle pump track and shaded play areas are planned at the Port Macquarie Breakwall Holiday Park.

A development application for staged alterations to the caravan park and construction of an outdoor recreation facility is before Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.

The proposal is on the agenda for the July 19 council meeting after the Development Assessment Panel (DAP) was unable to reach consensus.

The council report said the applicant, since the DAP meeting, had submitted information from a specialist consulting acoustic engineering firm about the potential noise impacts of the proposed development.

The proposal is to construct an outdoor recreational facility with a water park, bicycle pump track and shaded play areas.

The site earmarked for the water park and bicycle pump track contains cabin sites which would be relocated.

Part of a road would also be removed.

The development would be staged with the recreational facility to come first and the establishment of the relocated cabins in stage two.

The council report noted at the time of writing the report, the modular pump track component was partially constructed.

The report said the intent of the application was to build the pump track as it was classed as exempt development.

A recent development approval will result in the staged replacement of amenities blocks with modular units at the Port Macquarie Breakwall Holiday Park.

There is also approval for a single security fence along the eastern boundary and part of the southern property boundary.

Meanwhile, the response to a question from Cr Rob Turner about single-use plastic bags is also on the council meeting agenda.

Cr Turner, in a question at a previous council meeting, asked the general manager to provide information about how the council could assist in reducing the use of single-use plastic bags in the community.

The council meeting begins at 5.30pm on July 19 at the council chambers in Burrawan Street.
