Outrageous that local park sale is on agenda again
I am writing to voice my objection to the proposed reclassification and sale of Community Land and other lands of conservation value as proposed in the Council business paper for the April 27 meeting.
in 2016, the community held a major campaign against Gosford Council's proposed sell off of local parks and reserves.
The campaign was successful and we kept our local parks - no doubt something many appreciated in particular after Covid hit.
It is outrageous that this is now on the agenda again.
I believe that there will be strong opposition to the reclassification and sale of any conservation, open space and recreational land.
To base Council's recovery plan on this premise is, I believe, foolhardy as it is not an approach the community will support.
As a Peninsula resident, in particular I register my strong objection to the proposal to reclassify and sell the public reserves at 83-85 Brisbane Ave, Umina; 1 Austin Butler Ave, Woy Woy; and 7-9 Angler St, Woy Woy.
