As Gosford is awash with cranes working on new developments, the Gosford branch of the NAB is closing permanently on August 31.
Customers received letters this week letting them know that their nearest branch after August would be the Erina branch at Fountain Plaza.
The NAB has been on the corner of Mann St and the now closed off William St for as long as this writer can remember.
The former LJHooker offices on the other side of the William St mall have been empty for years.
A long list of former iconic sites are sitting idle, including the old Broadwater hotel up the road, the former Gosford chambers and the old county council building that continues to crumble before our eyes.
The council chambers’ future remains in limbo as Council waits to see if the new State Government will continue with the previous government’s idea of moving the TAFE to the site.
And a sign has gone up on the old Froggy’s site which is beside the old county council building: the land is now for sale and is being described as a “landmark development opportunity”.
And more cladding has gone up recently on the derelict Marketplace building, at the other end of William St, presumably to keep homeless people from entering and taking refuge there.
