Central Coast

Strategic conservation plan

The population of the Central Coast is forecast to grow by 22 per cent to 415,000 residents by 2036.

The NSW Government’s vision for the Central Coast is to deliver the infrastructure, housing and jobs needed to cater for future population growth and to create vibrant, liveable, connected urban centres with green spaces and protected biodiversity.

The region’s natural environment is one of the key reasons people choose to live in and visit the area. Protecting the Central Coast’s many native plants and animals is necessary to help create connected, vibrant and liveable urban areas.

The department is investigating strategic conservation planning across the Central Coast region to support urban development while protecting plants, animals and their habitat at a landscape scale. This work includes assessing impacts on biodiversity from future urban growth on the Central Coast.
