Council continues to consolidate policies

Events On Open Space Areas is one of the five policies now on exhibition

Five new draft policies are now on public exhibition as Central Coast Council continues to deliver consolidated policies for the entire region following the amalgamation of the former Gosford and Wyong councils.

They are the latest of 68 policies from the Environment and Planning Directorate to be consolidated and relate to temporary licensing on open space areas, holding events on open space areas, tree vandalism management, keeping of animals and smoke-free outdoor public places.

“During the review process, where policies are found to have ongoing relevance, they are being updated and consolidated to ensure a single policy exists for the Central Coast Local Government Area (LGA),” a Council spokesperson said.

“Where policies are determined to be no longer relevant or obsolete, they are recommended for revocation.”

The five policies will be on exhibition until October 29 with comments from the public welcome.

Mayor Lisa Matthews said this marks another leap forward in delivering consistent policy direction across the region in all areas of Council business.

“Council staff have been working hard since the amalgamation of the two former councils to review and develop consolidated policies … whilst also delivering on essential services and facilities for the community,” Cr Matthews said.

“This undertaking not only ensures responsible, transparent and fair governance but also creates a policy framework which is contemporary and relevant.”
