Administrator Appointment 

Mr Rik Hart is the Administrator for Central Coast Council, appointed by the then Minister for Local Government, the Hon Shelley Hancock MP. This followed the Minister’s announcement on 26 April 2021 of a formal Public Inquiry into Central Coast Council led by Commissioner Ms Roslyn McCulloch.

The Council was suspended on 30 October 2020 and the formal inquiry meant that the local government elections scheduled for September 2021 were postponed until late 2022 for Central Coast Council, the date of which will be determined in consultation with the NSW Electoral Commission. 

The Administrator acts as the Council, effectively replacing the role previously performed by the Mayor and Councillors. Mr Hart assumed the role of Administrator from Mr Dick Persson AM who had been in the role since October 2020.

On 17 March 2022, Minister for Local Government, Wendy Tuckerman tabled the report into the Public Inquiry into Central Coast Council, and took action to terminate all suspended Councillors, effective immediately.
