The community needs to find a new strategy
It is not surprising that yet another multi-storey, over-sized development on the The Esplanade, Ettalong Beach, had been proposed to Central Coast Council in August 2020.
This, with the Central Coast Council assisting the development application by requesting a rezoning to the Dept of Planning, Industry and the Environment, in June 2021, without any mention of the development proposal.
If the public thinks they have any genuine say in what happens in their community regarding development, they should think again.
Once Council has rezoned land in anticipation of developers moving in to facilitate the state government's agenda of increasing population density on the Central Coast, no amount of objections has any real effect on mitigating proposed over-development.
The community needs to find a new strategy.
