Ask residents first about apartment blocks
Heaven help us if Central Coast Council wants to make Woy Woy like Gosford (Peninsula News edition 460).
Where on earth does Council plan to put more residents?
Gosford is a dying town because of all the idiotic ideas that councillors have allowed to develop.
Woy Woy has its own problems but at least we don't have multiple empty shops yet.
Planning by Council should be totally resisted before we see a Spotlight store at Empire Bay, a McDonalds on St Huberts Island and a Kathmandu store at Koolewong.
If they think that multi-storey residential apartment blocks would be acceptable, they had better ask the Peninsula residents first.
They want more units and townhouses so they can fleece us as much as they can for more rates, yet give us back so little.
No new developments should be approved in suburban streets on the Peninsula until the entire road has a footpath and kerbing.
Thousands of residents are sick of living in streets that have not been properly made for more than 30 years.
The Peninsula is possibly the most densely populated and favourite location on the Central Coast and it has been very poorly treated by successive Councils.
The residents deserve better than anything this current Council proposes.
