Locals take the lead

on petitioning Council

The Member for The Entrance, David Mehan MP, has renewed his calls to Central Coast Council to review its plans for new public amenities buildings within the Long Jetty Foreshore Reserve.

David Mehan discusses the petition to Council for a new amenities building with Long Jetty resident Laurette Rose.

Mr Mehan wrote to Council about the new amenities building on 24 January, after meeting with concerned local residents about Council’s plans to reduce the proposed facilities by more than half of the existing facilities, including the removal of all changerooms and showers.


Concerned local residents have now taken the lead on a petition they intend to present to Council urging a review of the current plans and asking that Council ensure that heritage signage is retained.


David Mehan MP said “The Community has really stepped up to ensure that Council hears its views on not only the significance of the heritage signage on the building at Archbold Road, but the fact that the amenities will be significantly reduced.


“A concerned local resident and advocate for the community, Ms Laurette Rose, has collected in excess of 100 signatures regarding the amenities building at Archbold Road, Long Jetty asking that Council reassess its plans in relation to reduced amenities and heritage signage at the location.


“Council has yet to respond to my representations, which is disappointing. I look forward to a suitable resolution that meets the needs of my community and tourists who visit our beautiful area.”
