Central Coast Council has started a month-long consultation, which aims to seek local opinion about projects planned for Woy Woy.

The projects include the Woy Woy wharf redevelopment, the Woy Woy Town Centre Strategy and Woy Woy Place “activation initiatives”. Council director Ms Julie Vaughan said: “Woy Woy is one of our principal town centres. “We have a number of projects and initiatives scheduled for this financial year that are designed to increase the vibrancy, safety and accessibility of this beautiful location.

“Woy Woy locals, regular visitors to the town centre and commuters who access key services are best placed to inform plans and projects that will make a real difference and that will boost economic activity and tourism. ” She said community input was vital to shape a number of major projects in the pipeline for Woy Woy.

Other projects include an upgrade of Woy Woy Tidal Bath and a new public toilet at Fishermen’s Wharf, and a new art installation. Further afield projects include an upgrade of James Brown Oval, a new amenities building at Roger’s Park and a new boat ramp at Correa Bay.

More generally, the consultation will cover road and drainage projects, water and sewer projects, Climate Change Action Planning workshops and the Central Coast Heritage Study. Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said community feedback from this consultation process will play a vital role in shaping the future of Woy Woy.

“It’s time to talk all things Woy Woy – I encourage as many community members as possible to have their say on how we can make this great town centre even better, ” Mayor Matthews said. The consultation will start today (Monday, October 28) and end on Monday, December 2.
