CWA branch calls on council to be 'fair and transparent'

The Woy Woy branch of the Country Women's Association has called on Central Coast Council to adopt a "fair and transparent" process, following the threatened demotion of the Pelican Park playground.

"Following community backlash, Council have advised that further community consultation will take place before the playground is demolished," said branch president Ms Jane Bowtell.

"As a community we must ensure that this process is fair and transparent.

"We urge Council to address the concerns of the community and explain exactly why the park must be demolished, instead of refurbished.

"We are very happy to lend our support to those fighting to keep the playground.

"At no time was CWA Woy Woy consulted, or advised, about the planned demolition of Pelican Park or the building of the new park which has now been hastily put together.

"We heard of this at the same time as the rest of the community.

"The new playground at Anderson Park Reserve has been hastily constructed.

"It was not planned to be built until July, but has now magically materialised overnight (June 27).

"The gate for the new park does not lock correctly and, as such, is a safety risk to families planning on using the new facilities near the busy road.

"There is also no seating for families or people with disabilities and mobility issues."

Ms Bowtell urged residents to continue to sign the "Save Pelican Park" petition and to write to "to voice your concerns".

"This is not the end of the fight," she said.

"Please continue to voice your concerns to Council so we can ensure the process is fair and transparent."
