Waiting on the revised dog plan
A revised Draft Dogs in Open Space Action Plan will go out for Community Consultation for 28 days.
The revised draft includes:
# a smaller off leash area at Pippi Park, Davistown plus Memorial Oval as a new off leash space.
# Terrigal Haven dog park becomes an on-leash area or a fenced area for off leash.
# Lett Park at Wamberalt, behind the surf club, to become an off leash area
“The Revised Draft Plan has also been prepared in recognition of the high rates of dog ownership within the Central Coast local Government Area (LGA) and in consideration of the various and sometimes competing uses of Council’s open space network, and the need by Council to balance those uses,” Council says.
The revised plan was not made available in time for the meeting and on Thursday, August 24 it was still not public.
So no more detail at this stage: keep an eye on the Your Voice Our Coast website.
Gosford Bowling Club days are numbered
Gosford Bowling Club will go through the process of being reclassified from community to operational land so it can be sold or used for other purposes down the track as part of the Gosford waterfront revitalisation plans.
The community gets to have a say about the future of the Austin Butler Reserve land near Peninsula Plaza Woy Woy. The plaza wants about 4000 sqM to improve the Woolies loading dock area.
The community has been campaigning for years to keep this land which council first starting talking about selling to the plaza when it was selling land to raise $60M. The $60M has been raised so the community says keep the land.
Now administrator Rik Hart has offered the community a choice: keep the land or sell it and use the money to plant street trees.
The community’s immediate reaction – from those at the meeting – was keep the land AND plant more street trees.
There were 16 items dealt with on the night but these two were the highlights.
