Disabled access being installed at The Pavilion
Disabled access is finally being installed at The Pavilion in Woy Woy after almost 20 years on inaction.
The long-standing issue preventing disabled access to The Pavilion looked like it was coming to an end two years ago when representatives from both Deepwater Plaza and The Pavilion met to discuss possible works.
An apparent agreement between them seemed to bring to an end an impasse, which arose after a private building certifier failed to ensure that disabled access to The Pavilion was available from adjacent carpark, and Council staff failed to intervene resolve the issue.
This left a ramp from the shop level to the street without any safe means for people in wheelchairs to access the carpark for more than 15 years, and vice versa, due to high kerb and guttering.
"It's good to see disability access finally here for so many of us who need it," said Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch from her wheelchair.
"After many, many, many years of pushing and prodding from our community and many letters from my office, The Pavillion is installing an accessible ramp at the kerb."
