Council to employ more regulatory planners
Central Coast Council has increased "employee costs" for its Development Assessment Unit by $900,000.
The increase has been offset by a $900,000 reduction in the Materials and Services budget.
The increase will be used to employ more staff "to cater for the demand in the building-construction sector and Councils legislated obligations".
"It is anticipated that any uplift would be for a temporary period only (maximum two years) with the employee costs budget being reviewed as part of the annual review cycle."
