Woy Woy consultation open for three more weeks

Residents have just under three weeks to make their submissions to Central Coast Council's "Let's Talk Woy Woy 2022" consultation, which closes on Monday, July 4.

Let's Talk Woy Woy 2022 is a follow-up to the Council's 2019 Let's Talk Woy Woy "campaign", according to the consultation project page on the Council's Your Voice Our Coast website.

"Two years on from its major community consultation project, Let's Talk Woy Woy, Central Coast Council has completed a range of major works, upgrades and improvements throughout the Woy Woy town centre, with more projects currently underway," it states.

"The community is invited to have their say on projects open for consultation, find out about others and share their thoughts and aspirations for the area."

The Council provided its August 2020 consultation report as the basis for further comment.

That report said that, in addition to the Woy Woy Town Centre Wharf, the 2019 Let's Talk Woy Woy sought feedback or provided information on over 16 other projects occurring within the area including the town centre strategy, the issue of parking in Woy Woy, the Central Coast Heritage Study, and the upgrade of the local tidal baths.

The report warned that not all suggestions would be taken up.

"We do our best to develop strategies and projects to meet the needs and requests of the community and stakeholders.

"(But) technical constraints, costs, and the overarching project objectives must also be considered to deliver a project or strategy that is safe, functional and best balances the competing needs of all those affected."

Apart from the wharf redevelopment, the consultation report included comments about planning and development, the natural environment, roads and transport, parking, community spaces and parks, town centre "activation" and economy, and heritage.

Planning and development topics included issues of height, over-development, village charm and character, redevelopment of Deepwater Plaza and the railway station, compliance with planning controls, housing affordability, climate change, heat and flooding.

Natural environment topics included suggestions about incorporating greener spaces and shade, and about flooding and waterways

Roads and transport topics included a rail underpass-overpass, road maintenance and changes, Kerb and guttering, Road signage, a network of cycleways and walkways, pedestrian crossings, traffic, parking, and public transport.

Topics about community spaces and parks included the tidal bath, the channel foreshore, public toilets, parks and reserves, seating and play equipment, community facilities, public lighting, waste and Anderson Park.

Town centre topics included beautification, connectivity, maintenance and vandalism, commercial and economic growth, public events, safety and security, signage and other ideas.

Heritage topics included suggestions of buildings to be restored and maintained, and trees and landmarks to be heritage listed, heritage walk, signage and general suggestions
