Council staff sum up Woy Woy plans in two paragraphs
Gosford West Ward Councillor Richard Mehrtens has received a two-paragraph answer from council staff to a question on notice regarding the future of Woy Woy Town Centre.
Central Coast Council's over-arching review of town centre management announced that Woy Woy would be designated as a "principal town centre" but Council staff gave little detail in their response to Cr Mehrten's question about Woy Woy's future.
In October, Cr Mehrtens asked:
"What is the plan for the future of the Woy Woy Town centre including consideration of rejuvenation and making better use of the open and green spaces in the precinct?"
Staff did not respond until December 10, in time for the last ordinary meeting of 2018.
Their answer was: "As part of the development of a future Comprehensive Local Environmental Plan, Council will be undertaking a review of the existing masterplan for the Woy Woy Town Centre Precinct with a view to developing a masterplan and Local Strategic Planning Statement in consultation with the community by 2020.
"Future planning for the Woy Woy Town Centre will recognise not only the existing character of the area but plan for future population growth."
