Mount Ettalong Masterplan on Agenda
Currently, the lookout over Pearl Beach remains open to the public, however the main lookout on the eastern side of the reserve is closed. Once developed, Council's masterplan will see improvements for the community's experience and enjoyment of the outstanding natural environment
Council's Director of Environment and Planning, Scott Cox, said it's important for residents to become involved in preliminary discussions.
"We're inviting the community to participate in the Mount Ettalong Reserve Masterplan survey which will create a baseline for the community's preferences and expectations for the development of the Mount Ettalong Reserve Masterplan," Mr Cox said.
"This is an opportunity for residents to have their say about an area of great local importance.
"By holding community engagement sessions and inviting people to be part of the discussion from the beginning, we are ensuring that any plans for the area take into consideration the wishes of the community who will ultimately be the users of the space."
Mayor Lisa Matthews said Council and the community have the opportunity to work together on the project which will help Mount Ettalong become a true community asset.
"The Central Coast is a fantastic place for recreation and as a Council we're always looking to improve our outdoor spaces and services. The Mount Ettalong Reserve Masterplan is the first step of what will be a beneficial project for the Peninsula community and anyone who visits," Mayor Matthews said.
"We have the opportunity to make Mount Ettalong more inclusive, functional and safe for everyone and invite the community to have their say."
Residents can have their say by completing an online survey and registering their interest in attending a community workshop.
The community workshop to present the results and outline the future direction of the project will be held at Umina Surf Life Saving Club on Thursday 2 April from 5-7pm.
All responses to the online survey must be received by Monday 16 March.
