Workshop about planning on the Peninsula discussed
A workshop about planning on the Peninsula is likely to be held locally in February as a result of a community planning forum held at West Gosford last Saturday.
The West Gosford forum was organised by the Central Coast Friends of Democracy and Central Coast Community Better Planning Group.
Peninsula Residents' Association secretary Mr Julian Bowker, who attended the forum, said discussions would be held to organise a similar forum on the Peninsula.
He said the association was interested in hearing from residents to help shape its submission on the draft Central Coast Regional Plan 2041.
Among the speakers at the forum was council general manager Mr David Farmer.
Mr Bowker said Mr Farmer confirmed that Woy Woy was receiving special attention and that the council was looking at ways to change the public attitude to one that medium density was desirable and where people want to live.
Mr Bowker said he hoped the February meeting would provide information about what is happening, gather community opinions and encourage residents to contribute to submissions, both through the association and individually.
