NEWS THAT MATTERS

Norah Head community

can claim a great victory

Congratulations to the Norah Head Community who presented strong Opposition to Central Coast Council’s plans to sell the land which is the site of the areas’ only Community Hall.

21 January 2022

 

THE NSW Government has provided a $935 000 Stronger Country Community Fund grant which will see the site upgraded with new Hall, playground and parking.

 

This would not have been possible without the efforts of the Norah Head Playgroup, Norah Head residents/ community group and Save Norah Head Community Hall group that led the campaign to protect the site from sale.

 

“This was a grassroots campaign led particularly by a group of Mums trying to protect their access to a site for their playgroup in the best interests of their children,” said Member for Wyong David Harris.

 

“Both Emma McBride, Federal Member for Dobell, and myself made representations to Council and spoke in Parliament on the importance of the Hall to the Community.

 

“Emma and I were pleased to lobby Council on behalf of the local residents, and we are pleased that common sense prevailed.

 

“I also thank Administrator Rik Hart who listened to the Community and reversed the decision to sell the land.

 

“This is an example where politicians all work together across Party Political lines to get a great outcome for the Community."
