Central Coast Council is committed to community consultation and engagement with a number of projects opening for discussion this week.

Council's Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan said consultation with the community is continuing to ensure projects keep moving to meet grant funding milestones or to ensure they are ready for funding applications or implementation in the new year.

"In the last financial year more than 6,000 pieces of feedback from our community helped shape 50 projects, plans and strategies," Ms Vaughan said.

"Our 'Your Voice - Our Coast' online portal demonstrates Council's ongoing commitment to engage effectively with all members of community, offering a seamless user experience and enabling the community to easily search for projects by category or by location.

"While Council is currently focussed on delivering essential services, we also have a number of projects we need to seek our community's input on to ensure they meet our funding milestones or are ready for implementation or funding bids in the new year.

"I would encourage our community to jump online to have their say on the projects that interest them."

Council is currently seeking input on the following projects and plans:

including:

  • Gwandalan, Tunkuwallin Oval district playspace
  • Gwandalan, South Eastern Park local playspace
  • Integrated Water Resource Plan
  • San Remo, John Pete Howard Reserve district playspace
  • Terrigal Haven, ex-HMAS Adelaide II mast monument
  • Terrigal Lagoon trail concept design
  • Tuggerah Lakes foreshore restoration works
  • Wamberal Beach terminal protection and sand nourishment
  • Warnervale District Contributions Plan
  • Winney Bay Clifftop walk concept designs

Council's administrator, Dick Persson AM said community participation in planning matters is important in creating a shared sense of purpose, direction and understanding.

"Council has the important responsibility of ensuring decisions we make for and behalf of the community ensure appropriate community input is considered in the process," Mr Persson said.

"While I am focusing on understanding Council's financial situation, it's important that Council continues to engage the community on key operational issues.

"I encourage everyone to be active in their community and sign up to Council's weekly Coast Connect e-newsletter so you can stay informed on opportunities to have your say."
