SUBJECT OF THE PETITION: Gosford Council Land Sale - 2015

On 8 Sept, 2015 Gosford Councillors considered a report provided by staff (SF 17 Land Strategy). The report indicated that Council’s Property Group has reviewed Council’s portfolio (of some 3200 land parcels) to establish sites with sale potential. The report provided a list of 20 shortlisted sites (as Stage 1) identified as having sale potential, with no further use to Council and having little community benefit. The review will include further stages.
We note that there is no documented Land Sale Strategy that has gone out for community consultation and that there has been no community consultation as part of the review of Council’s portfolio of sites.

ACTION REQUESTED:
We, the undersigned petitioners ask that
1. Will Gosford Council develop a Strategy and put this out on exhibition for public comment? and
2. Will Gosford Council undertake community engagement with the local community and interested stakeholders to assess the true social, environmental and economic value of any sites being considered as having sale potential?
