A public meeting was held on 19 Jan,2016 to bring together groups and residents who are opposed to the loss of local reserves, parks and greenspaces through Gosford Council’s sell off of public land.
On 8 Sept, 2015 Gosford Councillors voted to proceed with Stage 1 of a public land sell- off, without any overarching strategy or public consultation. On 10 November, Council voted to proceed with Stage 2.
The Councillors that voted to go ahead with the sell off (without proper community consultation) were Lawrie McKinna, Deanna Bocking, Bob Ward, Chris Burke, Jim MacFadyen, Gabby Bowles, Craig Doyle and Jeff Strickson. The 2 Councillors that voted against it were Hillary Morris and Vicki Scott.
