Ettalong residents group to hear about development
Residents for Responsible Ettalong Development will hold a meeting tomorrow night, Tuesday, April 30, from 8pm at the Ettalong senior citizens centre.
The meeting will update residents on their battle to see development at Ettalong that conforms with planning provisions, including guidelines for height and bulk.
Group convenor Mr Peter Gillis will present information about Ettalong Beach's commercial corridor which has a height limit of 17 metres and about the impacts of high rise developments along this corridor.
Greens Party member Mr Wolfgang Koerner will explain council's development approvals process and State Member for Gosford Ms Leisl Tesch will give Labor's views on Peninsula growth and development.
Other State and Federal representatives have been invited.
The meeting is expected to last one hour.
The group has now more than 120 members and is growing as residents show their concern about proposed developments which exceed the council guidelines, Mr Gillis said.
One application for Ocean View Rd proposes six storeys in a shared units and commercial space.
Further up the road, the existing Centrelink building site has been approved for a six storey apartment block.
Mr Gillis said residents believed the village feel of Ettalong needed to be kept and were calling for development that was more in keeping with the scenic quality, character and heritage of the area.
Details can be found on the group's website at rrettalong.org or by attending the meeting at the Ettalong 50+ Leisure and Learning Centre at the corner of Broken Bay Rd and Karingi St, Ettalong Beach.
