Benjamin Parker Reserve to be sold to developers

Gosford Council wants to sell the community park on the corner of Dover Road and Lake View Road, known as Benjamin Parker Reserve.

The fire sale of this valuable park means that Wamberal parents will have even less areas where children can play in safety.

This park has plenty of shade and is in a central location for young families with a bus stop nearby.

It should be preserved and a quality playground and picnic facilities installed to benefit the whole community.

Council have not made this decision widely known, probably because there is simply no sound reason to support the sale.

And Council has not said how any funds raised will be spent to benefit ratepayers in Wamberal despite the significant loss amenity to our community.

It goes before Council on Tuesday 8 September 2015.

It is outrageous that Council has only given 4 working days notice and hid the proposal on page 103 of the agenda.
