Rubbish spoils thoroughfare to beach

I also agree with recent Forum letters pertaining to areas of the Central Coast becoming garbage dumps.

I refer to another area between West St and Ocean Beach Surf Club which is a disgrace.

This area is a main thoroughfare for both residents and visitors to access the Surf Club and the beach.

Food and food wrappers from nearby shops, cigarette butts, dog excreta, collected rubbish thrown in gutters from parked cars, intact and broken beer bottles and glasses, vomit and a dead water rat, are just some of the items I have had to dispose of or clean up from the front of my property.

In addition, there are seeded weeds a metre high growing in the nature strips and a plethora of other weeds growing among the native gazanias which some residents try, against the odds, to preserve and maintain as they hold the sandy soil together.

The street gutters are blocked by weeds and sand.

It would appear that residents who pay rates are also expected to attend to Council's cleaning, weeding, safety and health issues.

Trees planted by Umina Community Group are frequently attacked by hoodlums as are the supporting tree stakes.

Rev heads burn up the road on bikes or in souped-up cars.

I have seen two cars racing side by side on the wrong side of the road from the beach to West St.

My family has lived here for 55 years.

The area used to be pristine until development and Council's greed took over.
