Rates for our roadworks have gone elsewhere
The Woy Woy-Umina Peninsula is probably the most densely occupied and developed part of the former Gosford Council district.
Residents in this area have been paying council rates for decades, yet many streets are poorly paved without footpaths or kerbing.
You would expect the footpath along the esplanade between Ettalong and Umina to be first class, but alas no, just like Booker bay Rd which has some of the most expensive real estate on the Peninsula.
It is apparent that the rates from the Peninsula landowners has gone to developing other parts of the shire, but improvements on the Peninsula are well overdue and the new Central Coast Council should recognise that the current lack of improvement is not acceptable.
Street improvement throughout the Peninsula should be high priority for the new Council, especially as it is already being and has been paid for.
