Council will investigate partnering with an external provider to deliver a visitor-based paid beach parking scheme for the Coast's foreshore areas through an Expressions of Interest process.

Initial investigations indicate that visitor-based paid parking is a viable option to recoup some funds spent on infrastructure and services that are currently being enjoyed by over 5million visitors each year.

Council Administrator, Dick Persson AM said ratepayers currently carry the financial burden of visitors and in the current financial climate it is necessary to explore alternative revenue options.

"The Central Coast economy relies heavily on visitors and presently this group make no direct financial contribution towards foreshore infrastructure and services," Mr Persson said.

"Council staff have scoped the administrative cost of establishing a beach parking system that provides protection to ratepayers; estimated a potential projected revenue stream and timeline for implementation; and determined potential foreshore areas to be considered for this scheme.

"The next step now is to determine willingness for an external supplier to partner with Council so we can progress the scheme at no cost to Council."
