Open space leasing, tree vandalism, keeping of animals and smoke-free outdoor areas policies now on exhibition

By Central Coast Council
Posted: 20 Sep 2020
As part of Central Coast Council continued effort to deliver consistent policies for the whole region, five consolidated draft policies that relate to open space leasing, tree vandalism, keeping of animals and smoke-free outdoor areas are now on public exhibition for the community to review and submit comments.

This forms part of the ongoing program to review 68 policies from the Environment and Planning Directorate in order to consolidate all former Wyong Shire Council and Gosford City Council policies following the amalgamation.

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

The following draft policies are now on public exhibition for a 42-day period until Thursday 29 October 2020 to provide the community with an opportunity to review and submit comments:

  1. Temporary Licensing of a Trade or Business on Open Space Areas Policy
  2. Events on Open Space Areas Policy
  3. Tree Vandalism Management Policy
  4. Keeping of Animals Policy
  5. Smoke-free Outdoor Public Places Policy

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 for the one Central Coast region, whilst also delivering on essential services and facilities for the community," Mayor Matthews said.

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