Council sets up six advisory committees
Central Coast Council has set up six advisory committees at its meeting on December 18.
Brisbane Water will have its own Catchment and Coast Committee to assist Council in the development and implementation of Coastal Management Plans.
Other committees include a Coastal Open Space System Committee, an Employment and Economic Development Committee, and a Heritage Advisory Committee.
A Catchment and Coast Committee for Tuggerah Lakes and a Gosford CBD and Waterfront committee were also formed.
Mayor Cr Jane Smith said a more formal committee structure would give active and interested community members a chance to be involved in driving the strategic direction and decision-making of council on matters directly affecting them.
"We are a large council area, representing over 330,000 residents and we need to ensure we are representing the community's interests in the best way we can," Cr Smith said.
"The committee structure will give those with a real passion, interest and expertise in a key economic, environmental or development area a chance to have input into the decision-making table," she said.
The establishment of other committees will be considered at a Strategic Planning Workshop of the council in February.
A full report including the terms of reference and make-up of the Committees will be prepared for Council consideration.
