The first full financial year budget for the combined Central Coast Council has been placed on public exhibition for a month. Hundreds of projects are planned across the Coast in the $199.8 million capital works program.

Council’s Plan will also deliver $561.5 million in services. A list of the major projects, to benefit the entire region, to be undertaken in the 2018-19 financial year included one on the Peninsula: $2 million to upgrade the sewer pump station at Woy Woy. Mayor Cr Jane Smith said: “We will be delivering just a small surplus – $64,000 – as we want to invest every dollar we can on delivering the services and infrastructure our growing community have told us they need, want and value.

“Our community has identified their vision of where they want to see the Coast grow and be in ten years’ time. “We want a smart, responsible, green and livable Central Coast where everyone belongs.

“This draft Operational Plan outlines a clear promise to our community – a promise we look forward to delivering.”

To view the draft Plan go to, Council libraries and offices at Wyong and Gosford. Submissions will be received up until 5 pm Thursday, June 14.
