Why not solar panels at carpark?
We object to the sale of the Unima carpark between Bullion and Alfred Sts, Umina.
Rather than sell this off, how about Council restore the grounds and cover it in elevated solar panels?
This way we all get a local power station and much-needed shade, as with Deepwater Plaza, Woy Woy?
A plan such as this will improve the amenity for shoppers, be a benefit to businesses and feed electricity back to the grid at a profit over time.
Selling "lazy assets", as these listed properties are being termed, appear to us as at odds to Council spending $5 million on a feasibility study for Warnervale Airport after Chappie Pie land was withdrawn from sale in Tranche 1 because it didn't sell.
The State Government appears to be more interested in upgrading Williamtown airport than Warnervale, so why proceed with the sell off of our public lands?
