First Central Coast Council Operational Plan Now on Exhibition
Wednesday, 8 June 2016
Central Coast Council’s first draft Operation Plan 2016-17, which outlines their annual spend, including the management of over $11 billion worth of assets, is now on public exhibition.
The comprehensive plan combines the former local government area plans of Gosford City and Wyong Shire to set out the actions and projects a Central Coast Council will deliver to the community.
Council’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Rob Noble, said the Plan details a commitment to continuing the services and service levels of the former councils for 2016-17.
“This draft plan outlines how we will deliver more than $540 million on essential services and $183 million on a quality infrastructure,” Mr Noble said.
“There is a strong focus on key community priorities with more than $150 million dedicated to improving our road and drainage networks, including Hastings Road Terrigal, Goobarabah Close Lake Haven, The Ridgeway Lisarow and Bligh Close Tumbi Umbi, to name a few.
“We will also ensure attention remains on maintaining our unique environment, enhancing community facilities as well as developing our open space and recreation assets.”
Key projects identified include the replacement of three existing amenities buildings, construction of a new multi-purpose building and upgrade of sporting fields and car park at Adcock Park, as well as new facilities to be built at Halekulani and Tuggerah alongside planned upgrades at Cambourn Drive Playground Lisarow, Swadling Park Toowoon Bay and McEvoy Oval Umina.
“Everything we are doing is designed to improve the quality of life for our residents, while helping to create jobs and opportunities for our growing community,” Mr Noble said.
“I would encourage anyone interested in the future of the Central Coast to take a look at the plan and have their say.”
