Shellharbour City Council has reserved its support for the contentious proposed development of Killalea State Park.
Councillor Peter Moran moved a motion at this week's meeting that the council withdraw the conditional support it gave Reflections Holiday Parks in early 2018, saying plans for the park had changed in the three years since.
He said proposals for a 200-seat multifunction centre and luxury eco cabins were not in keeping with how the community enjoyed Killalea.
Cr Moran's motion was voted down after Deputy Mayor John Murray suggested an alternative, that council reserve its support until it could be satisfied Reflections had conducted thorough community consultation, more details were received, and a second access road was included in the plans.
Mayor Marianne Saliba said it did not appear adequate community consultation had occurred to date.
The alternative motion was carried five to one, with Cr Moran voting against.
The councillors' comments came ahead of a mass 'paddle out' and rally at Killalea on Saturday, May 1 in protest against Reflections' plans.
Reflections chief executive officer Cameron Tynan announced on Friday that a drop-in information session planned for the same day had been postponed to make room for the protest.
Mr Tynan said Reflections had heard the strong views of community members.
