About Council

Central Coast Council is responsible for the sixth largest urban area in Australia. Our Council area is 1681 square kilometres, which makes us far bigger geographically than Canberra.

The most recent projected population of the Central Coast by 2036 is 415,050. That’s a 23% increase in population, of approximately 80,000 people. Planning for growth and maintaining the lifestyle that our community enjoys is important for Council.
