Following consultation with Surf Life Saving Clubs, Central Coast Council has determined to pay $201,000 per year, for the next three years, to fund beach safety through Surf Life Saving Central Coast (SLSCC) and individual clubs.

The new Council has resolved to pay $36,000 per year to Surf Life Saving Central Coast to coordinate beach safety. In addition, each surf club will receive $5,750 per year directly. The former Wyong Council paid a total of $82,000 per year for beach safety, including $16,000 per year to Surf Life Saving Central Coast and $11,000 directly to each of the six clubs. According to a report to the ordinary meeting of Central Coast Council on July 26, “Surf Clubs also share Council’s owned and funded fleet equipment such as AllTerrain Vehicles (ATV’s) and Jet-skis.

“This fleet support to Surf Clubs is valued at approximately $50,000 annually, based on usage. SLSCC will also have $78,750 to purchase equipment on behalf of all 15 surf clubs such as: inflatable result boat (IRB) motors; IRB hulls; service radios and oxygen equipment; and one rescue board annually.
