The Peninsula has been forgotten
Being one of the oldest and most densely occupied areas of the NSW Central Coast, the Woy Woy Peninsula area has been basically forgotten.
Peninsula ratepayers have poured millions of dollars into Gosford Council coffers with little to show for the monies collected.
This is not just now but has happened over many, many years.
Residents have to plead to have the channel dredged to let ferries have access and roads lay virtually untouched for decades with no footpaths or kerbing.
High tides cover the wharf at Woy Woy and even spill over into some streets.
Council builds a swimming centre and a football oval and they think that will placate the concerns of all.
Orange Grove Rd running past many million dollar homes does not even have a footpath for wheelchairs or pedestrians.
It is so obvious that Peninsula rate monies have been spent on other parts of Gosford Shire.
Older and poorer suburbs like Redfern, Waterloo and Leichhardt in Sydney at least have had footpaths and kerbing for many years.
Peninsula residents should revolt and stand up and tell Council that we have had enough and we are not going to put up with this treatment any more.
We deserve better.
