Traffic due to villa development
In answer to Tim Haylor's letter to the editor (Peninsula News, 23) concerning traffic congestion in Ettalong, Umina and Woy Woy, I suggest that this is mainly due to the demolition of older homes to make way for villas.
This has been going on for the 30 years I have lived on the Coast and nothing has been done about it.
Just in my street, on one side alone, there are roughly 70 villas where once there stood around 30 homes, and that's only one street.
I don't see what harm one McDonald's would do.
Umina is a growing community and it will give the children of the area a job.
You also mention noise pollution.
Ocean Beach Rd is "noisy" now, so that won't make any difference.
We have neon signs everywhere now so one more isn't going to make a difference.
McDonald's is one of the cleanest restaurants around, and as for other restaurants in the area suffering, people with families can't afford to go to them anyhow.
I say bring on Macca's at Umina.
It never hurt my grandchildren.
