In accordance with the Resolution of Council on 11 November 2019, the Draft Tuggerah to Wyong Economic Corridor Strategy (Draft Strategy) was placed on public exhibition to allow for public consultation prior to being finalised and adopted.
The Draft Strategy sets out a 20-year vision for the Tuggerah to Wyong Economic Corridor and has been prepared by Central Coast Council to guide growth and investment in the study area. The Draft Strategy also implements the directions and actions of the NSW Government’s Central Coast Regional Plan 2036 (CCRP).
The Draft Strategy is designed to meet the needs of a growing population. The Draft Strategy seeks to identify opportunities to increase the number of local jobs and thus reduce the high number of workers currently commuting out of the Central Coast for work. The Draft Strategy will also ensure that the northern part of the Central Coast has an economic growth corridor to support the region moving forward.
