New Woy Woy wharf plans announced

Central Coast Council has announced its plans to redevelop Woy Woy wharf.

The $5.32 million redevelopment is the largest wharf project undertaken by Council.

Its design features a floating pontoon to adapt to most tide and weather conditions.

Council director Mr Boris Bolgoff said the new wharf would deliver substantial benefits for Woy Woy and the Central Coast.

"Accessibility for community members who use wheelchairs or other mobility devices has been a priority throughout the design process," he said.

The new wharf would include a wheelchair lifting facility on the pontoon for recreational boat users.

It would also include solar lighting, a covered gangway and passenger shelter, decking made from recycled plastic and a dedicated fishing wharf.

The pathway along part of The Boulevarde and Brisbane Water Dr would be widened and include a cantilevered section.

Landscaping would include established salt-water-tolerant trees and benches would be provided with mobile phone charging capability.

Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said: "The new Woy Woy Town Centre Wharf will deliver far reaching benefits for the Woy Woy community, residents who use ferry services to commute and the broader Central Coast community.

"Thanks to a significant funding injection form the NSW Government, Council will deliver a wharf that will become a major attraction for locals and tourists alike."

The project will receive $3.99 million from the NSW Government's Regional Communities Development Fund

The council reported Deputy Premier Mr John Barilaro as saying: "The rejuvenation of the rundown Woy Woy Town Centre Wharf will help make the Woy Woy waterfront precinct accessible for all, while taking car pressure off local streets and ensuring local residents can keep enjoying a tranquil beach lifestyle."

Ferry services will use the adjacent commercial wharf during the construction period and will continue as scheduled.

Residents can have their say on the new Woy Woy Town Centre Wharf through a consultation running from Monday, October 28, to Monday, December 2.

Feedback can be provided by attending drop-in information sessions on Thursday, November 21 at 10am-2pm or 4-7.30pm at the Country Women's Association hall, opposite the wharf in The Boulevarde, Woy Woy or by visiting the council website
