Green Grid could see Peninsula tree planting projects

Central Coast Council has resolved to "endorse the Central Coast Green Grid Plan: Our Place" as "a key informing document for LGA-wide and local place planning activities".

The plan listed a number of "potential projects" which include a number of tree planting projects for the Peninsula.

They also included additional commuter parking in Woy Woy, upgrades The Masonic Temple on Railway St, Woy Woy, and to re-establish an ocean pool at the southern end of Umina Beach with signage about the history of the pool that was there in 1960s and 1970s.

One potential project was to develop "priority planting concept plans" for the Peninsula "to inform operational street upgrades and tree planting programs".

Eleven of the Peninsula projects were said to have originated in "community feedback from workshops 2020".

These included weed removal and new native plantings at the south end of Umina Beach where the headland begins and more native tree planting in Memorial Park along Brickwharf Rd, Woy Woy, highlighting its significance.

Others included tree planting for shade at sporting field peripheries such as Lemon Grove Park Netball Courts, James Browne Oval, Austin Butler Oval, Umina Oval and at Kitchener Park, Ettalong.

Street tree avenue planting was identified for the north side of Brisbane Ave, linking to Ocean Beach Rd; for Trafalgar Avenue from Wellington St to The Esplanade; and for Lone Pine from Rabaul Ave to Ocean Beach Rd.

Other projects included historical signage and additional landscaping at the Governor Phillip Memorial near the Rip Bridge in Blackwall, and Ettalong viewing platforms with indigenous and local history signage.

Another potential project was to link the Umina Coastal Sandplain Woodland pocket behind Jasmine Greens Cafe to the creek, by planting of banksia and other endemic species and adding a walking track and signage.

The restoration of Pearl Beach lagoon, the Brisbane Water Cycling Loop section from Woy Woy to Kincumber, and mountain bike trails for the Broken Bay Sport and Recreation Centre in the Hawkesbury River were other listed projects.
