Chairlift concept proposed for tourism plan

The possibility of building a chairlift from Woy Woy to Kariong has been raised in public comments on Central Coast Council's draft Tourism Opportunity Plan, which was adopted on October 8.

The concept will now be referred to "an appropriate unit" within the Council.

Other ideas suggested across the Coast that were noted included a beach soccer tournament, a night time economy, the development of a motorsport park, a wave pool, and a drive-in cinema.

Another suggestion was "some sort" of major tourism attraction and another suggested the Coast needed general maintenance and a tidy-up.

Cr Jane Smith moved amendments that it included low-impact water activities such as kayaking and stand-up paddling as an investment opportunity.

The five-year plan aimed to maximise opportunities to attract visitors to the region.

In a press release sent out after the council meeting, the mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said the plan recognised the strengths of the region, identified challenges and opportunities and sought greater efforts to capitalise on them for the future, with a goal to boost the visitor economy for the region by $70million.

"This Plan encompasses the very small to the large.

"It embraces areas such as heritage, cultural and environmental offerings, revitalising our places and the aesthetics of the physical region," she said.

"It allows us to explore opportunities such as new live music experiences, better food and beverage service levels and extended retail hours at local businesses.

During the 60-day public exhibition period, Council received 51 public submissions.

"The next step is to look at what we can do to enable tourism and drive employment opportunities."
