Community asked to forget it had seen parking plans
Pretty Beach Public School has retracted one of its school newsletters after accidently leaking concept plans for parking changes on Araluen Dve.
It is understood Central Coast Council was seeking feedback from school staff on the plans due to the school's proximity to Araluen Dve and the subsequent impact any parking changes would have on the school's daily pick up and drop off.
They were not intended for public consultation at the time but were accidently published in the school's newsletter on August 15, prompting principal Ms Karen Wardlaw to retract the newsletter a day later.
In a letter addressed to the school community, Ms Wardlaw asked any community members that had seen the plans to disregard them.
"In our recent school newsletter, we attached a concept plan regarding parking in Araluen Dve across from the school.
"While this was appropriately shared with the school for initial consultation by Council, this was not intended for community consultation at this time.
"The school has since spoken with Council regarding this misunderstanding and apologised for circulating initial concept plans within our community.
"As this is currently a concept plan only, we respectfully ask that parents and community members do not contact Council at this stage.
"The Council will be further engaging in a process of consultation with community at the appropriate time.
"Thank you in advance for deferring any thoughts, opinions or comments until a more concrete plan has been released by the council for community consultation," Ms Wardlaw wrote.
