Noticeable change expected on the Peninsula

Peninsula Chamber of Commerce president Mr Matthew Wales has told the Rotary Club of Umina that he expects a noticeable change on the Peninsula in the next five years, according to Rotary club president Mr Bruce Croft.

Reporting on the talk, Mr Croft said the change was expected to be particularly evident in medium density residential development.

Mr Croft said that among the points made by Mr Wales was that "there are plans next year to re-ignite Woy Woy commercial centre with better traffic management and commercial solutions.

"The heavy commuter traffic from around 8000 cars daily to and from the station is causing traffic gridlock and severely impedes local ability to park and shop.

"Council is amenable to relocating the multi storey commuter carpark away from Deepwater Plaza but is unable to find suitable land at a reasonable price.

"Peninsula Chamber of Commerce is in favour of extending existing ground level bitumen commuter parking as it is far cheaper than multi storey construction.

"Council is currently seen as a basket case, unable to solve critical issues. Capital works and maintenance have been cut back and street cleaning contractors are being replaced by Council staff with reduced output.

"The three town centres on the Peninsula need to be redeveloped into ground floor commercial and three to four level residential above the shops.

"A significant upgrade to Peninsula Plaza is about to commence with more commercial space, increased parking and provision for residential development.

"There was no planned future development to the car park behind the West Street shops in Umina."
