Put toll on M1 to pay council's debts

Five years have passed since the amalgamation, and the future is as blurred as it was in May 2016,

The.Regional Plan 2016 is based on a population increase of 75000 and a dwellings increase of 41,500,

These projections, ahead or behind schedule, are relevant to the Peninsula.

Each of the three administrators have had unrestricted access to this information.

Residents are concerned for their future as decisions are made which are rejecting the adopted regional plan.

As the administrators believe the sale of Council assets is the appropriate strategy to reduce the Council's debt, further sell-off is a possibility contradicting planning instruments and strategies that have been publicly exhibited and adopted.

The inept manner the sell-off was orchestrated was overwhelmingly evident on April 27, before and during the Council meeting.

Administrator Hart will not want to refer matters to the public for comment, as he will be very aware of the potential embarrassment.

It should be noted the five year plan has failed.

With the 10-year plan already in the red, I suggest a very small toll be added to the Central Coast section of the M1 to recover some of the Council's debt.

Toll roads are a fact of life, tolerated by motorists.

A small toll will be of immense benefit to the Central Coast Council and residents.
