Workshop on draft regional plan – 28 January

NSW Planning has released the draft Central Coast regional plan.
It is supposed to set the terms of planning for the future of our region over the next 20 years.
It will deal with things like – where business and residential areas will be in the future, infrastructure needs, how future growth will affect your local suburb, land use (including resource extraction) and whether the environment is important in future planning.
Community consultation on the draft plan is currently underway with submissions closing on 28 February, 2016.
The Community Environment Network (CEN) needs your help – and submissions – to make sure that the protection of the environment is a cornerstone of the final Central Coast Regional Plan.
A workshop will be held on Thursday, 28 January, 2016 from 6:00-8:00pm at the
Central Coast Leagues Club.
Representatives from the Department of Planning and Environment will provide a presentation on the draft plan and respond to questions and comments.
More importantly, Cerin Loane, Policy and Research Coordinator with the Nature Conservation Council of NSW will also present on some of the important features that should be included in the Regional Plan and how this draft plan compares with others that are being done around the state.
From this the CEN will work with you to identify key issues for CEN’s submission and input.
Please come along to this workshop to ensure that the environment and our communities have a voice.
Bookings are essential.

Hope to see you there
