In the past fifty years, our region has undergone a dramatic shift from being primarily a rural locality and tourism destination to a popular and affordable residential choice due to the natural assets of beaches, lakes and national parks and the proximity to Sydney and Newcastle.
This rapid growth has created interesting challenges for Council to meet the immediate and long-term needs of our community. Improved infrastructure and creating local jobs to cater for our region’s high unemployment and large commuter population are just two of Council’s goals.
In ten years’ time we see the Central Coast as a prosperous and self-sufficient region – a place that people aspire to live and visit.
