Open air public areas are a valuable commodity
Woy Woy should try not to lose the public amenity preserved by the valuable open air bowling areas near Lions Park, which from my understanding were originally given to the community by a benefactor.
Open air public areas are becoming a rare, valuable commodity and will become increasingly important for the physical and emotional wellbeing of future, younger generations.
Intelligent town planning and aesthetic design which adds even more to public amenity is entirely possible, affordable, desirable and preferable.
We only need to use even more imagination.
It is not as though there are not already some good examples on the Peninsula of people developing and not developing with sensitivity toward the natural and human environment.
In addition to style, aesthetics, foresight and public interest, it goes without saying.
Please let's make the Peninsula special, not just business as usual for an area with this amount of natural beauty and that includes the Council.
I am sure that it doesn't need to be said that the best business including Council business, is made using aesthetics and cultural interest at its heart.
Another issue that appears to me is that if benefactors cannot be sure that the community continues to have benefit from their generosity, the reason for doing so in future will be eroded.
