“The funding for two separate footpath & cycleways on Bungary Road in Norah Head and along the Tuggerawong foreshore will support pedestrian safety and encourage greater cycling uptake by the local residents.”
“The outdoor waterpark at Peninsula Leisure Centre will be a unique facility for the region and attract further casual users.”
Mayor Jane Smith welcomed the significant investment in the arts, sporting and recreational opportunities right across the Central Coast.
“Our community’s vision is for a smart, green and liveable region with a shared sense of belonging and responsibility,” Mayor Smith said.
“Working closely with the State Government to deliver high quality infrastructure and opportunities for our growing community is a way we are delivering on that promise.
“We are pleased the State Government have come to the table and delivered such significant funding for major projects that will help create a vibrant and sustainable Central Coast.
“Council has a limited budget, that is why securing funding opportunities is a priority for us and will continue to be.
“I look forward to continuing to work with all levels of government in the best interests of the Central Coast.”
