I am writing to register my strong disapproval of the proposed construction of an Australian Tax Office (ATO) building on the former Gosford Public School site bounded by Georgiana Terrace and Mann Street on the waterfront fringe of the Gosford CBD.
I am requesting the proposal be put on hold to allow proper community consultation to take place. The announced site is on land that was promised as a community arts, cultural and recreational precinct.
I believe this prime waterfront land is an inalienable public asset and should not be broken up into individual sites. This space belongs to the people. Gosford is a beautiful city by the water. Buildings need to enhance this beauty, not destroy it.
Its proposed use as an arts and recreational zone was greeted with much appreciation by the community, which recognised the cultural benefits of a public precinct on such a naturally beautiful site.
We need and want a performing arts precinct with a purpose built acoustic concert hall with ancillary space for the Central Coast conservatorium, rehearsal rooms, space for local and travelling musicians to perform, plus an outdoor auditorium and children’s playground and buildings needed to service such facilities.
While any effort to bring jobs to the Central Coast is commendable, I ask the Federal Government to consider an alternative site within the CBD where the full value of the influx of workers can boost local business.
I implore the Government to reconsider the location of the ATO building. The present plan is a disaster for our community and a permanent blight for future generations.
Yours sincerely,
