Site meeting was waste of time
I attended the site meeting in Ocean Beach Rd on Tuesday, December 13, regarding the re-zoning of 430-438 Ocean Beach Rd, Umina.
Cr Craig Doyle was the spokesman.
To me it was a waste of time.
Cr Doyle completely took over and was very rude and arrogant to some people in attendance.
I am not against rezoning at this particular site, for perhaps doctors, dentists or other professional services but not McDonalds.
McDonalds attracts many young people who have no respect for the area.
If the development went ahead, we could expect more litter in the streets.
The litter is a disgrace in this area already especially at the bus stop in West St and a McDonalds would only add to this problem.
The road is always so busy.
When I drive out of Nowack Ave in order to go right, I have to turn left and go round the round-about as it is impossible to drive straight on to Ocean Beach in order to turn right due to the volume of traffic.
Also, when walking, I have to walk down to the pedestrian crossing to cross Ocean Beach Rd.
McDonalds is already situated in Woy Woy, five minutes drive from Umina.
We don't want McDonalds here.
