UPDATE: OUTRAGEOUS ATTACK ON FREEDOM OF SPEECH BY COUNCIL
Gosford City Council removes private signs on private land. The signs were modest and constrained and simply communicated key issues as to why Council should not approve the development application. Council claims any sign on private land is not exempt development and therefore requires a formal “Development application”!
Controversial plans for a massive 120 place child care centre, at the intersection of the Central Coast Highway and Reads Road Wamberal has created a lot of concern due to:
- the industrial size and scale of the development
- the impact of noise pollution – potential for industrial noise levels in a residential area)
- traffic congestion at the junction of Reads Rd and the Central Coast Hwy
- safety of pedestrians.
If approved this development would set a precedent for any rural residential area with 7(c2) zoning to develop the area on an industrial scale.The size and nature of the development conflicts with the 7(c2) conservation and scenic protection zonings and will adversely affect the aesthetic and scenic value of the land and it’s settings.
There is still time to send a submission on this application to Gosford City Council or make a comment online at Planning Alerts.
