Demonstrators outside Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein’s office in Woy Woy

Demonstrators protest sand mine expansion About 100 sand mine protesters demonstrated outside the Woy Woy office of Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein on Friday, January 17. Central Coast Greens representative Ms Kate da Costa said a range of community groups and individuals were taking a stand on the Calga sand quarry. “Aunty Beve welcomed us to country and explained the importance of the women’s

fertility initiation area at Calga which is already partly damaged and threatened with almost total destruction under the expansion,” said Ms da Costa. “I spoke on behalf of the Central Coast Greens about our Protecting Our Water campaign. “We acknowledge all the other issues, such as heritage, noise, dust at the site, but we have a particular focus on the impacts of mining and quarrying on our water supplies for the Central Coast. “We are calling on the State

Government to implement a ban on all new sandstone quarrying for building sand, new long-wall or open cut coal mines and any CSG exploration, drilling or fracking anywhere in the water catchments of the Central Coast,” said Ms da Costa. Mr Jake Cassar, representing Save the Sacred Land at Kariong, discussed aspects of the damage being done by Calga, as did convenor of the Camp Quoll protection camp and information booth Mr Ian Sutton.

Greens MLC Mr David Shoebridge spoke about his visit that day with his daughters to the Wildlife Walkabout Park and Treetops. He said he was astounded that the potential for eco-tourism was being put at risk by the threat of extractive industries for a possible overall loss in employment on the Coast. “Despite our written invitation and two phone calls to his office, the local elected representative of Gosford, Mr Chris Holstein,

who had a prior engagement in Newcastle, did not provide a statement or ask his staff to speak on his behalf,” said Ms da Costa. “The community has still not been informed about Mr Holstein’s position on the Calga quarry expansion, nor what he is doing personally to protect water on the Coast, or what he is doing to keep his Water Not Coal promise made at the last State election,” she said.

Changes to planning scheme proposed A planning proposal is being prepared by Gosford Council to address issues arising in the draft Gosford Local Environment Plan since its initial adoption and submission to the Department of Planning in 2011. The proposal incorporates amendments to the draft LEP including; temporary land use provisions, information relating to temporary events and activities on public land, name changes, amendments to maps and rezonings.

The Planning Proposal will be sent to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure if no submissions objecting to the proposal are received during a public exhibition period. A number of amendments to the plan’s maps will be included in the proposal including: Lot 1 DP 311853 Wagstaffe Ave, Wagstaffe, which is recommended to change from the existing zone of 2(a)/7(a) to R2 as the 7(a) zoned area would was only 208sqm. Lot 1 DP 348158, Phegans Bay Rd, Phegans Bay would change from existing zone 2 (a) and

exhibited zone RE1 to the proposed zone of R2 as the land is 31sqm in area and in private ownership so should be zoned R2. Lot 102 DP 747829 Kathleen St, Woy Woy, would change from existing zone 5 (a) and exhibited zone R2 to the proposed zone of SP2 as the lot is part of the Woy Woy Hospital site and should be zoned SP2 Health Services Facility as is the rest of the site. Lot 32 DP 717084 Myola Rd, Umina, would change from existing zone 9(c)/Reserve and exhibited zone R2-RE1 to the proposed zone of R2 as the lot has had its

boundaries corrected which means part of the private lot is zoned RE1 and the R2 zone needs to be aligned with the new boundaries. Lot 130 DP 9508 Jacaranda Ave, Patonga, changes from the existing zone of 7(a)/6(a) and exhibited zone of E2 to the proposed zone of E2-RE1 as the lot is shown as being in private ownership. There is also a strip of land 100 feet wide along Patonga Creek which is Crown Reserve and should be zoned RE1. Amendments to heritage maps will also be included in the Planning Proposal including a former house in the vicinity Orange Grove Private

Hospital in Cedar Cres, Blackwall. Council’s amendment states that the house is no longer part of Orange Grove Private Hospital and should be named House of Rock Davis as it was identified in the heritage study. Also proposed to be amended is the Woy Woy Railway Tunnel which was included in the State Heritage Register on June 28 last year and should therefore be included as an item of State significance in Schedule 5.

osford City recognised some of its finest citizens at the annual Gosford City Australia Day Community Awards, held for the first time during official Australia Day celebrations in Kibble Park on Sunday, January 26. Local humanitarian Peter Pearce was named the 2014 Citizen of the Year for his ongoing work helping those in need both in Gosford City and around the world. Mayor of Gosford City Cr Lawrie McKinna said hosting the awards

Owners of rare bushland helped with weed funding A group of nine owners of properties with rare bushland at Wagstaffe and Pretty Beach have been granted funds for a five-year program of weeding from Local Land Services. The funding of $10,000 will be used on bush regeneration work to be carried out on adjoining properties in Wagstaffe and Pretty Beach. These private properties are immediate neighbours of Bouddi National Park along the Wagstaffe ridge. The grant will help to conserve an endangered ecological community, the Pittwater and Wagstaffe Spotted Gum Community. The endangered ecological community was gazetted in May last year by the State Government’s

NSW Scientific Committee. Bush regeneration contractors will work on the properties up to May 31. Some work on private land will be visible from the Pretty BeachLobster Beach National parks and Wildlife services’ track and from the northern section of the Flannel Flower Walk. The on-ground bush regeneration work is expected to complement the work carried out in the adjacent national park by volunteers, National Parks and Wildlife Services’ staff and contractors. Weeds to be targeted include bitou, camphor laurel, asparagus fern, ochna serrulata, large-leafed privet and lantana. Over five years, the residents will assist the project by undertaking additional weed

removal and monitoring of work on their properties. This project aims to educate local residents on weed recognition and removal techniques. In the later years, residents in the adjacent suburban area will be invited to eradicate the same weeds on their properties, to protect the endangered ecological community in the long term. Bush regeneration techniques to permanently and efficiently remove weeds can be learnt through any of the local Council or National Parks and Wildlife Services’ volunteer groups, or via fact sheets that will be distributed in future years as part of the Local Land Services funded project.

Council ties advertising to editorial policy Senior management of Gosford Council has told a councillor that the council will not advertise or work with Ducks Crossing Publications unless it changes its editorial policy. The response was given to deputy mayor Cr Bob Ward in the context of a request from Ducks Crossing proprietor Mr Cec Bucello for council to advertise in his publications. The statement claimed that Ducks Crossing Publications did not meet Australian Press Council standards of accurate, fair and balanced reporting; of transparent and fair presentation; or of honest and fair investigation. However, the statement gave no examples or other substantiation of this claim. “Ducks Crossing Publications appear to contravene the APC’s General Statement of Principles and are not believed to provide a suitable vehicle for council to advertise its services and activities,” the statement

continued. It claimed that questions submitted to council “in many cases are already slanted toward obvious biases”. It did not say what these biases were. Peninsula News is owned, and its editorial policy controlled through its editor, by the voluntary non-profit community group Woy Woy Community Media Association, but its advertising service, production and publication is provided by Ducks Crossing Publications. Peninsula News editor Mr Mark Snell said he was not sure whether the comments applied to this newspaper or not, as no details were given. He said he had not received any complaints from council, councillors or staff and the paper had maintained a policy that was in line with Press Council standards. Peninsula News was always open to contributions from Gosford Council. Often it would like more detail than provided.

It was proud of its independent coverage of council affairs, Mr Snell said. Mr Snell said: “As a matter of principle, in a free and democratic society, no level of government should be attempting to stifle community discussion of public issues, particularly by playing favourites and using public funds to do so.” The full statement provided to deputy mayor Cr Bob Ward is as follows: “Council’s advertising is directed toward communicating with residents across the entire Local Government Area in the most direct, easily accessible and cost effective manner, while meeting our legislative and statutory requirements. “There is no strong link between council and the Murdoch press, as insinuated in the correspondence received. “Council does not advertise in Duck’s Crossing publications because: “1. Council engages its advertising, both statutory and Early General News (EGN), through Local Government Procurement; an organisation which undertakes procurement and tender services to councils across NSW. LGP’s approved media buying agency is Leonard, Holt & Robb (LHR), who has a bulk media buying power. This has an advantage for tenders and public notices that need to be advertised statewide or nationally in larger publications.

“2. In August 2013, council launched the Gosford Connect weekly lift out, a one-stop-shop for all council related services and activities. This combines all of council’s news stories, EGN and statutory advertising into one document in an effort to: “a. Provide an avenue to promote all of council’s events and initiatives across the entire Gosford LGA efficiently, rather than just in specific geographic sections; “b. Offer easy access to our customers to information about council’s full suite of services, initiatives and events; “c. Streamline and reduce excess and duplicate council press advertising expenditure and; “d. Replace the need for the production and distribution of the glossy newsletters referred to in your correspondence. “3. Council’s advertising sits in a weekly publication. The Duck’s Crossing publication schedule simply does not meet our requirements (for both statutory and DA advertising) or news cycle. “On a larger scale, the overall advertising landscape is changing. We invite Ducks Crossing to engage with Gosford City Council on social media, with other professional news agencies and the local community. This will serve to strengthen the lines of communication between our two organisations and our customer

base. “In terms of editorial, the General Statement of Principles outlined by the Australian Press Council refers to, among other things: “1. Accurate, fair and balanced reporting “2. Transparent and fair presentation “3. Honest and fair investigation “Council staff invest considerable time and resources in responding to enquiries from Ducks Crossing publications, which when received in many cases are already slanted toward obvious biases and no explanation or response from council will change the already established viewpoint. “As such, Ducks Crossing Publications appear to contravene the APC’s General Statement of Principles and are not believed to provide a suitable vehicle for council to advertise its services and activities. “Should Ducks Crossing Publications review their editorial standards, we are happy to engage in a conversation about how we can work together to achieve the same common goal; to inform and educate the residents within the Gosford LGA about activities and events that impact their lives and the services offered across our community.” Email, 30 Jan 2014 Bob Ward, Gosford Council

Women descend on rock pool Sixteen women descended on the Pearl Beach rock pool on Saturday, January 18, to take advantage of the warm weather and have a moonlit swim. The aim of the evening was for the members of the Wowgirls group to be able to enjoy a social swim and a shared supper under a

full moon. “The water in the pool was warmer than the sea,” said member Ms Ally Grace. “Afterwards a picnic feast was shared by the then hungry women.” Wowgirls is a non-profit organisation promoting friendships, fun and healthy lifestyles. Email, 20 Jan 2014 Ally Grace, Ettalong

Granny flat complies with approved plans Gosford Council staff have inspected a site in Murray St, Booker Bay, and have found it to comply with approved

plans. The inspection followed receipt by the council in November of a petition with four signatures of

residents who were concerned with the appearance of a granny flat construction. The petitioners stated that the appearance of the granny flat was most unappealing and obtrusive in appearance. They requested that mature trees and shrubs be planted to soften the view, the granny flat be painted a natural colour and be suitably soundproofed. The residents also requested that a meeting with a council inspector be organised so they can explain their grievances. Council advised petitioners in writing that a site inspection was conducted and it was determined that the development had been completed in accordance with the development consent and approved plans.

Runaway kite causes power loss

The Central Coast Community Energy Association’s secretary Ms Kate da Costa said the Association had been working closely with council over the last year to develop a proposal for a renewable energy project. The Association was one of nine community groups in NSW to receive a grant from the NSW State Government’s Office of Environment early last year. The grant was to undertake a research project with Gosford Council to develop an innovative mechanism to allow a council to work with a community-owned renewable energy project. The final grant report was submitted to the State Government

in October, and the Association and council have moved to the next stage. Details of the research project and the next steps will be provided by the executive at the meeting. “We know from sign-ups on our website, and through conversation in the street and at markets, that many residents of the Central Coast are excited about the idea of a community-owned renewable energy project,” said Ms da Costa. “There are two big hurdles in Australia – the idea is very new here and so it is hard to get the ball rolling, and it is even more difficult, given low to zero feed-in tariffs and other regulatory barriers, to identify a financially-viable project. “Working with a council is a great starting point to introduce the idea to the Coast. “Gosford Council is very interested in renewable energy, and working with the community, and we are very happy with their support. “Our research grant enabled us to get the best advice on setting

up a co-operative, and how to go about distributing profit to shareholders. “Now we need to move to phase two, and start to get an indication from Coasties about how much they would like to invest. “Most projects like this allow people to invest from as little as $200, which means owning a renewable energy plant is not just for wealthy corporations. “We have vacancies on our executive committee or on subcommittee working groups, so there is plenty of scope if anyone is interested in getting more involved; nominations can be emailed to the secretary on secretary.ccce@ gmail.com,” said Ms da Costa. All interested members of the public are invited to attend the meeting. Membership at modest rates can be paid at the door. Media release, 30 Jan 2014 Kate da Costa, CCCEA

A kite surfer enjoying the strong breeze at Ocean Beach on Saturday, January 25, got more than he bargained for when his kite broke away after a heavy landing. The kite flew into the power lines behind the beach and landed on a parked car. Antoine Sabourin, who was visiting from Sydney, had been performing some aerial stunts when his safety leash broke on impact. Onlookers watched as his kite flew by itself over the beach and into the overhead power lines. Sparks flew as the kites’ lines wrapped themselves around the overhead wires causing a fuse to blow and a loss of power in the immediate area. The fire brigade arrived shortly after and, with the help of an Ausgrid technician, ensured the safe removal of the kite from the power lines.

Forum

A clean-up goes a long way I consider myself to be an interested community member of the Peninsula and have always loved our beaches and parks. I congratulate the initiative and hard work of those that established the wonderful skate board and play area at Umina. This area is a great drawcard for holidayers and daily visitors. When finished, the foreshore area at Ettalong will be much appreciated. What a shame it is that locals and visitors alike have to travel along the Peninsula roads that are in such bad repair, circle

Forum roundabouts and median strips with huge weeds growing out of them and footpaths with rubbish piles and unmown verges. I appreciate the system that the council set up for the collection of rubbish after they have been informed by the tenant or ratepayer. Council should make an effort for some show of interest (other than the foreshore) in the Peninsula or will we continue to come second in council’s considerations? A clean up goes a long way.

Consider rail alternatives I have recently returned to the Woy Woy Peninsula and have noted a railway underpass proposal associated with Bulls Hill. The first thing I noticed was the rather absurd alignment roundabout with a right turn to the hill approach, somewhat of a diminishment of the curved current bridges approach at Woy Woy Rd (south). I could see major repairs if not flooding damage at the proposed roundabout.

Forum Access to the Nagari Rd tip is also less than ideal. The proposal does not address the real infrastructure problem of the steep and narrow Bulls Hill and winding road alignment past Horsfield and Phegans Bays. The level crossing at Rawson Rd is of concern as indicated in your page one article (Peninsula News, January 21) but this could also be addressed by considering a longer term corridor proposal

Test older drivers on their ability Most older drivers, I think, should be tested on their ability to drive a motor vehicle. Older people who take certain medication should not be on the road. Alcohol is another factor. I have had many near misses with older drivers who fail to

across the Woy Woy Inlet from Ocean Beach Rd with an interim rail overpass to join Woy Woy Rd (south). The railway goes through a rock cutting at this location so the height of the overpass to clear electrical cabling would be minimal. If necessary, Railway St also could be overpassed with possible height restrictions. The public in South Woy Woy to the west of the railway would find this access to town much more convenient as well. The only engineering or alignment problem could be high voltage wires in this vicinity across the inlet but a corridor to the lower end of Woy Woy Bar Rd should be possible for the future.

Forum indicate when going around roundabouts, gingerly approach a street or use one hand to steer the wheel. My father used to drive heavy vehicles and found that some drivers did things which were quite dangerous. My father gave up driving when he became unable to handle a vehicle. I also find that mobility scooters are a hazard and some older people use them as cars and speed along footpaths and shopping centres. Although they use them for their mobility purposes, they should not act dangerously. Letter, 21 Jan 2014 Linda Grindley, Woy Woy

Stitches to hand after shark bite A man from Umina has received five stitches to his hand after a one-metre black-nosed reef shark bit him while fishing from the rocks at south Umina. Richard O’Connor was fishing when his friend hooked a shark and, as it was landed, the shark swung round and clamped down on the fingers of Richard’s left hand. “I should have shown more respect for the shark,” said O’Connor. “He managed to get a bite of me before I got my teeth into him. Richard was rushed to the new GP Super Clinic in West Gosford by his neighbour 10 minutes before it closed. “Gosford Hospital had said they were really busy at Emergency and there would be a long wait,” said Mr O’Connor. “I arrived at the new clinic and was back home within 45 minutes hugely relieved by the anaesthetic with five stiches in my hand.” Senior clinician at the clinic Dr Beckworth, who was surprised when Mr O’Connor returned the next day with a bottle of wine for the doctor and a box of chocolates for the girls at reception. “It’s certainly the first shark bite we have treated since we opened six months ago and certainly the first patient to return with wine and chocolates,” he said. The remains of the shark lie filleted and frozen in O’Connor’s freezer awaiting the fishing feast he had envisaged before the incident. “I don’t know if I have been in that much pain before.” Email, 27 Jan 2014 Sarah Williams, Umina

publicity officer Ms Sue Robinson. “It is rare to get a singer who actually knows firsthand what he or she is singing about. “But US folk singer and longtime union activist, George Mann, is just such a singer. “And the picture he presents in his music is fun, lively, well-rounded and just made for singing along lustily and with good courage. “George has spent his life putting his money where his mouth is. “He has been working as a union organiser since his youth; one of the more complex and challenging career choices he could have made. “And the issues are a lot more complex than the casual observer might think. “Take the point George made in an interview before setting out for this tour,” she said. Mann was reported as saying: “Wages and benefits are important, but union organising drives in the US succeed more often when treatment on the job, job security, working conditions and safety are the primary issues. “When a worker takes a job, that worker knows the basic wages and benefits that are offered but it takes some time in the job before a worker begins to see unfair treatment, favouritism, and meanness on the part of the company.” Ms Robinson said: “George Mann’s concerts feature familiar, singalong folk songs as well as his own compositions, which are catchy, full of fascinating characters, ripping yarns and frequently funny takes on modern life in the US.” For more information, phone 4342 6716.

Band member to teach guitar Baby Animals’ band member Dave Leslie will teach guitar to people of all ages at a local music school this year. Dave’s group, Baby Animals has enjoyed number one chart positions, are ARIA award recipients and have toured internationally with the likes

of Van Halen, Bryan Adams and Robert Plant. Dave has also played in Jimmy Barnes’ band, Doc Neeson’s Angels and Richard Clapton’s band. Dave said he was keen to pass on some of the knowledge he has acquired from over 35 years of guitar playing.

He said that teaching beginners at the Woy Woy School of Music would be just as great a thrill as working with more advanced students. Email, 29 Jan 2014 Madeline Van Der Mast, Woy Woy School of Music

New production by Little Theatre Woy Woy Little Theatre’s most recent production Straight and Narrow will open at the Peninsula Theatre on Friday, February 21, for a threeweek season, including four matinees. The play was first presented on the London West End and theatre critics were full of praise. This “funny, touching, clever comedy” (Sunday Mail) is about three siblings, their partners and a domineering mother. The central couple are partners Bob and Jeff whose relationship is in crisis. Meanwhile Nona’s husband Arthur has run off with a younger woman. The third couple’s marriage is under a cloud as their fifth child is on its way while demanding mother Vera is totally confused. A cast of seven bring this production to life; Gerard Dunning, Will Burke, Helen Herridge, Trevor Doyle, Christine Cherry and John Lusty while well-known character actress Joan Dalgleish is playing the role of the meddling mother Vera. “I love characters like Vera,” said Joan. “You can have so much fun in creating this interfering domineering soul and it turns out that mother has a secret of two of her own,” laughed Joan. Woy Woy Little Theatre shows are no longer booked through the Laycock St Theatre website. Book online at woywoylt.com.au, phone 4344 4737, or in person at the Peninsula Theatre Box Office an hour before the show. Media release, 29 Jan 2014 David Wicks, Woy Woy Little Theatre

Charity bowls day raises $965 A charity bowls day was held at Woy Woy Bowling Club on Sunday, January 19, with $965 raised for Central Coast Kids in Need. The donation bought the club’s total for the year so far to over $2000. “Our new band of volunteer helpers in the form of Dave Bowman, John Campbell and John Orme were out in force to assist Alan McDougall, Bob Willis and Marion with their work,” said charity bowls coordinator Mr Ken Dixon. “Morgo and Dave Downey were on hand also and Ken Poole did his usual good work in the office.” Central Coast Kids in Need raises money to assist families who have seriously ill children with prolonged illness. Most of these children are cancer patients, others with organ transplants and premature babies with life threatening issues. Forty-eight bowlers were in attendance on the day with the Spider Glass won by birthday boy Col McCormack while Mark Fenton won the Lucky Rink Draw by getting over the top of John McDonald. “We all enjoyed a great lunch of corned beef and salad. “It was great to see so many new faces on the day, including some young bowlers.” New members are welcome

at the next bowls day on Sunday, February 16. Media release, 20 Jan 2014 Ken Dixon, Woy Woy Bowling Club
