Ettalong Beach Ferry Terminal
During the next few weeks the Chamber of Commerce will be making representation to the Federal Government for $4.5M to construct the ferry terminal at Ettalong Beach. It has approval and commencement. The project would bring visitors, commuters & tourists directly to the town centre in a state of the art ferry terminal.
With 85% of our local roads on the Peninsula not kerbed and guttered and in an appalling state, the Peninsula Chamber of Commerce will be making representation to the all levels of Government to invest our tax dollars to make huge improvements over the next ten years to infrastructure. Our roads need to be kerbed & guttered, drainage to consist of absorption pits to drain to underground aquifers together with concrete footpaths.
We have just seen the completion of the beautiful Ettalong Beach waterfront and we are now intend to make representations to Gosford Council to start planning to extend that work to Ocean Beach Surf Club. There are literally hundreds of people who walk the footpath/ cycleway each day and it is in need of improvements to walk safely and to enjoy the vistas.

Gosford City Council has received an application for a three storey, thirty (30) room board- ing house at corner of Ferry Road and Ocean View Road, Ettalong Beach. The application will be on exhibition until 26th February. The Chamber has raised serious concerns over the appropriateness of the develop- ment in this location. It has urged Council to ensure that that a full Social Impact Assessment is prepared and that a comprehensive crime assessment is completed. It is the Chambers view that such facilities should be located close to support services and public transport rather than in relatively isolated locations. The Chamber has also written to the NSW Planning Minister, Brad Hazzard to request that ‘Boarding Houses be removed from the LEP as a permissible use in areas incapable of providing support services’. We will also make representation to Gosford Council for their support as many other Coun- cils are doing at present. Parramatta & Hurstville Councils have refused the same on the grounds of ‘inconsistent with the street’s character” and “incompatible with established & future residential character of the area”
Submissions can be sent to General Manager Gosford City Council P.O. Box 21 Gosford 2250
