An Implementation Plan that sets out exactly how the Central Coast Regional Plan 2036 (Regional Plan) will continue to deliver jobs, housing, conservation planning and revitalisation for the region over the next two years, was released today.


The Central Coast Implementation Plan 2018-2020 is the second two-yearly plan to ensure the considerable progress achieved in delivering the Regional Plan since its launch in 2016, continues.
