GUST welcomes consultation on park sale plans
The Grow Urban Shade Trees group has welcomed Central Coast Council's deferral of plans to sell its pocket parks on the Peninsula to allow community consultation.
The group has urged residents to "keep those emails happening".
"The Administrator made it clear that there are no guarantees, stating that: Now is an excellent market for selling," said group member Ms Melissa Chandler.
"Please take 10 minutes to get informed about the proposed sale of community land.
"This is happening now and, without an elected Council, it is up to us to write and express our concern.
"The best way forward is to argue why a particular parcel is important as green space as well as raising concerns about it happening at this point in time without a proper process.
"Once it's gone, it's gone."
