A plan for the future of the Central Coast

The Central Coast Regional Plan is the strategic planning blueprint to ensure a sustainable future and the ongoing prosperity of the Central Coast’s vibrant and connected communities.

The draft updated Regional Plan 2041

The draft Central Coast Regional Plan 2041 (the draft plan) was on public exhibition from 6 December 2021 until 4 March 2022.

The exhibition was a key part of the plan’s first five-yearly review to reset its priorities and to extend its reach to 2041.

During exhibition the department conducted a number of online workshops with councils, the community and other stakeholders.

The department thanks everyone who took the time and effort to participate in a workshop, make a formal submission and give us your feedback in other ways.

The department will now closely consider the submissions and feedback will be incorporated into the final plan that will be released later in 2022.
