Areas of the site are likely to be heavily contaminated from an old underground storage tank that stored hazardous chemicals as well as from building and construction waste that has been dumped on the site since the 1970s.
Child safety on the line
Please support your community this Monday 14th at 6pm when
Council vote on the 81 place childcare centre on the intersection of The Central Coast Highway and Old Gosford Road.
The Council report is over the top in its bias towards approval and lacks objectivity and credibility.
Council state the development isn’t on an intersection.
Council state Old Gosford Road isn’t a busy road and will have no impact on local traffic or safety risks to community!
This 3 story building is oversized for the land but Council want to give special permissions to reduce setbacks to road and property boundaries.
Come along to show your support at the
Gosford Chambers, Mann st
Gosford. Meeting in front courtyard at 6pm.

Safety concerns for new child care centre
Many in the community are concerned about a very large 80 place child care centre right at roundabout with the Central Coast Highway and Old Gosford Road. They fear for the safety of children and feel that the location of the site so close to the intersection makes it unsuitable for a child care centre.
Save our parks celebration picnic on Saturday – plus other events

Thank you everyone, our parks are saved
The new Central Coast Council has abandoned plans to reclassify our parks under the now infamous “Land Sale Strategy” of the former Gosford City Council.
10 ways to save your park
We now have 10 sample letters that you, your family, friends and colleagues can send to the Central Coast Council to save the Benjamin Parker Reserve.
The Council report recommends that children play on the narrow strip of land between LakeView Road and Terrigal Lagoon; next to a sewer pump station, open stormwater drains and a busy road on flood prone land. Check out the photos.

Public meeting on parks – what happened on July 6
Further disappointment with Council is the outcome of todays public meeting concerning the sale of community parks like Benjamin Parker Reserve and 11 other parks across the Central Coast.
Council could not provide clear answers or information about the process and the lack of consistency frustrated the audiences at both meetings.
