Local residents, Greens MP David Shoebridge and local campaigners will be meeting outside Woy Woy Bowling club tomorrow to call for the rejection of the highly contentious proposal to build seniors housing on the flood prone site. The local campaign has been given strong support by a fresh report from Central Coast Council that has recommended the development be rejected by the Joint Regional Planning Panel.
WHEN: 9.30am Thursday 9 August, 2018
WHERE: Woy Woy Bowling Club, 186 Brick Wharf Rd, Woy Woy.
WHO: Greens MP David Shoebridge, Ross Cochrane of Save Woy Woy Waterfront, local residents.
President of Save Woy Woy Waterfront, Ross Cochrane, said:
“Our group has been saying all along that this site is unsuitable and the development must not be permitted.”
Greens MP David Shoebridge said:
“This proposal should never have got to first base. The site is wrong, the zoning is wrong and its bulk and scale is offensive.
“Seniors housing on this site would expose older people to the risk of being trapped in floodwaters. This risk will only increase as a result of climate change.”
