Residents' association makes eight submissions
A meeting of the Peninsula Residents' Association has been told that the association has made eight submissions to Central Coast Council and other authorities since it started last September.
Submissions have been written for the council's Green Grid policy, the proposed new Woy Woy ambulance station and the council's draft housing strategy, association chair Mr Mark Snell told the meeting on April 19.
Submissions were also made on the State Government's draft Central Coast regional plan, its "New Approach to Rezoning", the council's "delivery program", to IPART opposing the extension of the rate rise and about the council's management of the Umina Coastal Sandplain Woodland.
Mr Snell said the association had identified a number of issues of concern.
These included strategic planning, medium density housing, high density rezoning and development, the heat island effect and lack of shade trees and vegetation, flooding and ground water, provisions for walking and cycling, council rates and financial management.
Specific issues were the Pelican Park playground, Blackwall Rd intersections, Mt Ettalong reserve and the impact of regional facilities on the community.
"The Peninsula Residents Association aims to serve as a non-partisan forum and give the Woy Woy Peninsula community a collective voice on matters affecting its quality of life," he said.
He said the association held committee meetings fortnightly, general member meetings once every two months and themed public meetings or workshops three or four times a year.
The association is seeking new members.
