Meeting to discuss floodplain and council land plans

The Peninsula Residents Association will hold a public meeting at the Everglades Country Club at 7pm on Thursday, February 9, to discuss draft council plans for management of the Peninsula's floodplain and management of "community land".

Central Coast Council currently has the Woy Woy Peninsula Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan open for "Phase 2 consultation" with public submissions accepted until Wednesday, February 15.

It is also exhibiting its Draft Plan of Management for Council Community Land, which would cover 357 parcels of council land on the Peninsula.

Submissions for this plan close on Tuesday, February 21.

Association secretary Ms Jen Wilder said the meeting would "try to make sense" of the two plans.

"What are they proposing? What are the consequences?" asked Ms Wilder.

"Do they go too far? Do they go far enough?

"Do they meet community needs?

"These are the questions we want to discuss."

Ms Wilder said, in the case of the floodplain plan, the association wanted to know whether residents were willing to trade off high design standards for regular maintenance of a whole system built to a lower standard.

"Does the community support long-term plans to raise ground levels or 'landform' in low-lying areas subject to tidal inundation?"

Ms Wilder asked: "In the case of community land, is there more council land that should be included in the list to be preserved for future community use?

"Should some parcels on the list not be included, allowing them to be sold?

"Are the management provisions adequate?

"We would like to hear residents' thoughts."

Information about both plans can be found on the council's "engagement" website
