There is a document available from Port Stephens Council offices and the Raymond Terrace library entitled Port Stephens 2028 – Our Place. Our Plan. It is also available from the PSC Website
It is a discussion paper for the future of all wards and thus is relevant to us here. John Redman, President of VOWW and I attended a meeting held by Mayor Ryan Palmer and attended by West Ward Councillor Paul LeMottee and representatives of Service Groups from the West Ward area.
At this meeting ideas for the future of Raymond Terrace were proposed and John and I gave our ideas for the Brandy Hill, Seaham, Nelsons Plains, Woodville and Wallalong area. For us the major issues included connectivity between our ‘villages’; roads, paths, cycleways and also communications within the community as well as between this community and Council.
Final submissions have to be made to Council by 1st December.
VOWW is holding a normal meeting at Woodville Hall, near Iona School at 6.30pm on Wednesday, 29th November. Councillor Giacomo Arnott will attend. This will be a good opportunity to raise any concerns as well as outline our vision for our area for the next 10 years. If you have a suggestion that you would like to present please come along and have your say. All ideas will be discussed and VOWW will put together a proposal to Council by the 1st December. We also encourage you to put in your personal submission to Council either by completing the online survey via the website link above, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and quote PSC2014-01504, or write to Council:
