The Save Our Woy Woy Community Group has been told the application for a residential flat building on the corner of Blackwall and Farnell Rds, Woy Woy, is likely to be considered by Central Coast Council before the end of March.
The project, which is lodged as development application 54551 and is estimated to cost over $11 million, would comprise 27 units and six townhouses.
Group founder Mr Harvey McDougall said the group had met with mayor Cr Jane Smith, deputy mayor Cr Chris Holstein and local ward representative Cr Richard Mehrtens to voice their opposition to the proposed
The group also put forward its thoughts about Council approving non-compliant development applications.
He said the group was allowed five representatives at the meeting on Tuesday, February 5, and he was joined by Ms Beverley Biram, Mr Iain McLean, Mr Grahame Roll and Ms Janice McDougall.
“The meeting was good with each of us speaking strongly,” Mr McDougall said.
“The response from each of the councillors was encouraging without being committal.”
Mr McDougall said he understood the Council planners were in the process of writing up their report to be presented to the councillors a week before the application is to be decided.
The group was expecting to be notified at the same time as councillors.
He said the group had prepared speeches for the meeting.
