  • Step 1 Preparing the plan

    Evidence has been gathered about the Central Coast region to help inform the development of a draft Regional Plan. 

    Additionally, the draft Plan has been informed by a range of feedback received from councils, the community and stakeholder during consultation on Your Future Central Coast: A Discussion Paper in 2014.



  • Step 2 Plan on exhibition 

    The draft Central Coast Regional Plan was on exhibition from 25 November 2015 to 24 March 2016. 

    The draft Plan outlines a vision, goals and actions that aim to:

    • protect the region’s environment
    • grow and diversify the economy to create local jobs, services, and business opportunities
    • create thriving, liveable centres
    • deliver greater housing choice
    • in collaboration with councils, establish a committee to drive the coordination and delivery of the actions in the Plan.

  • Step 3 Submission review period

    We wish to thank the Central Coast community, local councils, community groups, and peak bodies for having their say on the Draft Central Coast Regional Plan.
    We have endeavoured to remove any personal or sensitive information from your submissions, prior to publishing. If you have any concerns about the published submissions, please contact our Hunter and Central Coast office on (02) 4904 2700. 


    We are now considering the submissions, including recording and analysing the issues and examining the suggested changes to the draft Plan.
    Once all submissions are considered the final Plan will be prepared and released. 




  • Step 4 Plan approved

    • a range of housing choices to suit needs and lifestyles.
