Unanswered questions show need for transparency
One can only hope the extension to the deadline for submissions to the DA for Woy Woy Bowling Club (Sporties) will compel Central Coast Council to provide honest answers to a number of unexplained issues.
How is it that the Club was originally built on Community Land?
The community-owned land was then sold off?
With real estate prices rising on the Coast, the value of this land was recently reduced by more than $7 million?
The 2014 site plans listed [part of] the land as public reserve?
The existing zoning will allow for what appears to be an excessive floor space ratio?
The land, which is zoned Private Recreation and recognised as flood-affected, meets the legislative requirements of Gosford Local Environmental Plan 2014?
Openness and transparency are essential if citizens are to trust their elected representatives and governing bureaucracies.
