All Saints Church at Upper Orara should be the focus of a heritage conservation area, Bob Bray-Ferguson has told Coffs Harbour City councillors.
Mr Bray-Ferguson addressed the councillors at Thursday’s meeting, saying a committee had been established at Upper Orara to save the historic church and to keep it in situ.
He said the committee wanted the church to be part of a heritage conservation area which included the adjacent Upper Orara Hall and Upper Orara Cenotaph.
“It is a heritage-listed building alongside other heritage listed sites,” Mr Bray-Ferguson said.
“Upper Orara is a friendly place and the people are very supportive ... it’s a little piece of paradise.
"If (the church) is removed it will be like a smile with the front tooth missing,” Mr Bray-Ferguson said. To read more, click here.
