Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald MLC has thanked outgoing Central Coast Council CEO Rob Noble for his outstanding leadership of Central Coast Council.

“Mr Noble’s stewardship of the amalgamated Central Coast Council has placed the region in great stead for the future” Mr MacDonald said.

“Mr Noble diligently oversaw the complex merger of the former Wyong and Gosford Councils.”

With the funding provided by the NSW Government, the new Central Coast Council has been able to implement the following major projects;

  • Disability Matters - Improved accessibility to natural spaces across the Coast, $800,000
  • Community Facilities - Access and inclusion upgrades to community facilities across the Coast, $580,000
  • San Remo BMX facility - New amenities, $640,000
  • Peninsula Leisure Centre, Woy Woy - Starting blocks and electronic timing system, $135,000
  • Foreshore stabilization - Brisbane Water Foreshore, adjacent to Elfin Hill Road Reserve, Green Point, $470,000
  • Playground renovation / upgrade - Niagara Park Children’s Centre and Umina Child Care Centre, $122,500
  • Alan Davidson Oval, Wyoming - Drainage and irrigation system installation, $349,000
  • Austin Butler Oval and Woy Woy Tennis Courts - Shared amenities redevelopment, $900,000
  • Avoca Beach - Foreshore protection works (stage 1), $2,800,000
  • Terrigal CBD - Traffic flow and pedestrian movement improvements, $2,200,000

Central Coast Council modelling projects net savings of $70 million over a ten year period. The Council is now in a strong financial position to serve its community.

Central Coast ratepayers have had their rates protected against future increases for 4 years (aside from rate capping increases).

The Central Coast LGA now encompasses 327,736 people across an area of 1,681 square kilometres and is the third largest Council in NSW.
