Petition on Ettalong building height presented to Minister

A petition with more than 1500 signatures has been delivered to the NSW Minister for Planning Mr Rob Stokes, objecting to Central Coast Council's proposal to increase the foreshore building height at Ettalong Beach.

Member for Terrigal Mr Adam Crouch delivered the petition to the Minister on behalf of the community group Residents for Responsible Ettalong Development on Tuesday, October 1.

The group has been campaigning against the proposal from Council to increase the foreshore building height limit from 11.5 metres to 17 metres - an increase from three storeys to five storeys.

"The proposal to rezone the foreshore height limit was approved by the Local Planning Panel in an agenda item not advertised, or otherwise disclosed, to the public," said group president Mr Peter Gillis.

" Council administrator Mr Rik Hart endorsed the proposal and submitted it to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment as a 'gateway proposal'."

The group's petition seeks a decision by the Minister to reject the proposal.

"This is a sensitive foreshore location with major beach erosion issues, and the proposal would make way for additional high rise over-development on Ettalong Beach," Mr Gillis said.

"There are already 52 units under construction within one block of the beach, with over 100 units approved or pending in other developments nearby.

"This proposal will have a massive impact on the village of Ettalong Beach, its infrastructure, amenity, and services."

The group is still accepting signatures for the petition, which can be found at the website by searching for Ettalong.
