Many unanswered questions on Woy Woy baths repair
Details of Woy Woy baths repair as reported in Peninsula News (October 30) may be logical to all levels of government but there is definite need to explain the interaction of all stakeholders, funding and responsibilities.
The baths will not be repaired to original condition.
For any works of significance, the nearby amenities block will need to be relocated.
Where this will be is open to conjecture.
I may not be the only resident trying to decide which actions are applicable to "damage by storm and flood events" as opposed to the Woy Woy Waterfront Masterplan.
Funding from state and federal governments is easy, compared to the challenge of determining the future of the baths and juggling the many demands on the waterfront.
Is the council committed to constructing a "waterfront promenade" in the area of the Memorial Park.
If so, both state and federal governments should prepare for more requests for funding due to "infrastructure damaged by storm and flood events".
I have made a submission on the Lions Park upgrade, referring to issues the council has not addressed, particularly the future of the bowling club site.
I now question the value of the council's public consultation held on June 9, 2022, at the Peninsula Leisure Centre.
Confrontation is looming in the near future.
I expect Dr Gordon Reid will be very concerned about poor water quality.
Will there be a call for volunteers to carry out regular water testing studies?
It is certainly a very interesting project.
