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.
Come down to the Wamberal Surf Club on Thursday evening for a workshop to help draft your submissions to save Benjamin Parker Reserve and our other playgrounds and parks on the Central Coast.
Starting at 7:15 pm, we will have computers and printers set up so you can prepare your submission on the spot.
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.
We need you to help protect our local parks, reserves and open spaces like Benjamin Parker Reserve on Dover and Lakeview Roads.
Council’s negativity is demonstrated by their deliberate attempts to limit community access to their public meetings. So your attendance can demonstrate the strong community commitment to saving our parks and playgrounds.
Bring your ideas and lets have a great time while we make our village an even better place to live at the community meeting 7:15pm Wednesday 29 June at the Wamberal Surf Club.
