Tesch seeks disabled access to shopping complex
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has written to the owners of a shopping complex in Woy Woy in another attempt to have wheelchair access provided to shoppers.
"As many residents are aware, accessibility at The Pavilion building in Woy Woy is unacceptable," said Ms Tesch.
"Non-able bodied residents cannot access the footpath from the disability parking spaces.
"This has been an ongoing issue since before I was elected in 2017 and the owners need to take action."
In her letter to Woy Woy Promenade Pty Ltd, Ms Tesch wrote saying "many commerical tenants and residents have expressed to me their concern and frustration".
"The opening of a new general practice My Check Health, Medical and Skin, only underscores the need to improve accessibility to this building so that all residents regardless of ability are able to access services.
"It is my understanding that there is a development application before Central Coast Council to improve accessibility and I would appreciate an update on the progress of this application.
"Any advice or clarity you can provide. is greatly appreciated.
"Thank you for taking inclusive action that ensures all residents are treated with respect, dignity and fairness in our community."
Ms Tesch said Deepwater Plaza management had shown "strong commitment to inclusivity and respect for all residents".
