Kerb and gutter in my lifetime?
Call me cynical but when I read the headline that Council will no longer charge property owners for kerb/guttering or footpaths I thought that it was a good decision, but reading further into the article the non-payment is only for planned works.
I would like to know if the old kerb or footpath needs repair or replacement due to age etc. will this new kerb or footpath be covered by this resolution?
It also seems to be very good timing for the redevelopment of the Terrigal CBD. Fancy that!
I have lived on the Coast for 30 years and only one property I have lived in had kerb and guttering (no footpath) and that was only because it was on a main road.
Sure I haven't lived in or around The Entrance, Wamberal, Terrigal, Avoca or in a new subdivision.
My current property has been paying rates for over 65 years and still no kerb, guttering or footpaths.
There probably won't be any in my life time.
