Boarding house on Ocean View Drive and Prince Street Wamberal - east copy

Council is considering an application for a nine-room boarding house on the corner of Ocean View Drive and Prince Street Wamberal.
UPDATE: Council has extended the period for submissions until 5pm Friday 16 September 2016.
If approved, it would consist of nine studio type apartments in two buildings.
Many in the community are concerned that development looks more like nine studio apartments rather than a boarding house, that it is highly unsuitable in an R2 low density residential zone with major traffic issues and could be easily converted to high cost, short term tourist accommodation in the future.

In a stunning turn of events, the general counsel at the new Central Coast Council has found that the previous Gosford Council had no power to sell Wamberal Memorial Hall
In 1994, Gosford Council resolved that the Wamberal Memorial, park and playground should be classified as “operational land.” That decision was simply wrong.
