It is very important that any new Tourism Destination name is of equal benefit to all destinations within LGA.

Including the place name ‘Barrington’, provides preferential exposure, paid for by all Midcoast Ratepayers.

It focuses tourist attention on only one small area -760sq klm; within the entire region which is 10,050sq klm.

Do a google search on ‘Barrington’ and you will get the full unfair picture. Pages and pages of Barrington area ‘facilities’.

The area already has extensive online exposure, and due to its proximity additional promotion from websites of The Hunter.

Imagine the outcry if eg.’Forster Coast’ had been proposed/approved! Barrington area already have extensive online exposure, & due to its proximity – additional promotion from websites of The Hunter.

This issue is about Midcoast Council making a decision to ensure the name they approve ensures all destinations are viewed equally.
