Community Group makes submission to Council

The Bays Community Group made a submission to Central Coast Council’s Draft Operational Plan for 2017-2020 absed on matters raised by Bays residents.
The Bays Community Group submission called for additions to be made to the plan.
These included: transfer of Woy Woy Rd from a regional road to a state road, in the hope this would see greater funding to improve the road’s reliability and safety, especially given growing use of the road and its importance to the Peninsula and the Bays.
The submission also called for better pedestrian access between the Bays and Woy Woy, and improvements to a number of roads throughout the Bays.
“Our submission also asked Council to remove rates on our Community Hall because of our contribution back to the community at no cost to council,” Bays Community Group president, Ms Cathy Gleeson, said.
“Other matters included our wish to work with Council on cultural and environmental activities,” Ms Gleeson said.
“We will keep all our residents updated when we receive a response from Council on our submission.
“Finally, I would like to mention that whilst The Bays Community Group sees its role as raising matters of significance on behalf of the Bays’ Community, we urge residents also to write or contact Council, State and Federal members and Ministers on matters of concern.
“If we all voice our concerns, the stronger the chances of our success,” Ms Gleeson said.
