In Ettalong Beach NSW on “Subdivision Strata Into 59...” at 49 The Esplanade , Ettalong Beach NSW 2257:

Vicki Hill commented

Yesterday, I took to the streets of Ettalong Beach with my pen & clipboard, doorknocking to get a feel from residents about the development going on in their area.

I was overwhelmed by the response. Building multi-storey units threatens the unassuming charm of this area. Unlike Umina and Woy Woy, Ettalong Beach has a relaxed, friendly "village" feel. Once it's gone, it can never be replaced
Overdevelopment is not just happening on the waterfront, but also on the back streets.
We have three on our street alone (Warrah) where they plan to build 3 double storey units on each undersized block. They are #2, 19 and 32 (next door to us).

All the people I spoke to were very passionate about the overdevelopment. Many, many residents want a community meeting with council. They want to be consulted and to be heard. Local politicians please take note.
