Council has to set standards
I must agree with Alf Quinten's comments regarding the non-complying development in Booker Bay.
It is a cop-out for the Council to say that a precedent was set because another development was approved that didn't comply.
This Council is a totally different organisation to the old Gosford Council, so it has to be seen to be setting the standards the community wants and needs.
Just because the previous organisation let one, two or three slip by it doesn't give the new Council the same get out of jail free card to approve non-complying developments.
This Council needs to stand up and show the whole LGA that they are going to be accountable for their decisions, which was a catch phrase from every successful candidate.
Come on councillors, stand up and be counted.
