Letter to the Editor: Where is work on Spencer Park?

DEAR News Of The Area,

I REFER to the article in the 4 April 2024 edition of NOTA where Port Stephens Council announced it had secured funding from the Stronger Country Community Fund (SCCF) to upgrade playgrounds in the Local Government Area (LGA).

There was no mention of Spencer Park, Soldiers Point.

However, in May 2020 Council announced that it had secured funding from the SCCF to upgrade the Spencer Park playground, barbeque and picnic settings, described as maintenance/minor works in the Soldiers Point Aboriginal Place Draft Plan of Management.

The funding was for equipment that everybody could use and was allocated specifically for Soldiers Point.

Disappointingly the playground remains in a dilapidated state.

Soldiers Point.
