Administrator Dick Persson will seek further assistance from the NSW Government for the costs related to emergency works at Wamberal and The Entrance North beaches.

To date, the NSW Government has committed $992,501 of the $2.9 million spent on recovery. This equates to half of the costs at Wamberal, with no assistance for The Entrance North.

Administrator Dick Persson said he would write to the NSW Premier and seek her assistance.

"The works undertaken by Council during this emergency was under the direction of the Local Emergency Operations Controller as appointed by the NSW Government," Mr Persson said.

"I will be writing the Premier to highlight the need for the state to work with local government and to assist with the costs required during such emergencies and will also be raising it with our Parliamentary Secretary here for the Central Coast, Mr Adam Crouch MP.

"It's important to note, that while the Coastal Zone Management Plan that covers The Entrance North was never certified, it was in fact submitted to the NSW Government for certification four times between 2011 and 2018.

"The works undertaken during the emergency were not reliant on the actions in these management plans, and I see no reason why the funding should be reliant on these either."
