Council cuts $1.44 million from Peninsula capital works

Just over $1.44 million in capital works has been cut from Central Coast Council's budget for the Peninsula when it adopted its 2024-25 Operational Plan on Tuesday, June 25.

Total cuts across the region amounted to $3.77 million from what had been proposed in its draft budget.

The Peninsula's contribution to these cuts represents 38 per cent, with a population of about 12 per cent of the Local Government Area.

The scheduled car park upgrade at James Brown Oval has been reduced from $920,000 to $50,000 with the "multi-year project rephrased".

The $500,000 roads and drainage upgrade to Patonga camping ground has been reduced to zero, being "deferred by one year".

A budget of $340,000 for a "district playspace upgrade" at Lions Park has been reduced from $340,000 to $29,000.

Explanatory notes simply state: "Decreased budget."

The budget previously included unspecified funds for Davistown as well as for Lions Park, Woy Woy.

Reference to Davistown has been removed.

Cuts in the three projects total almost $1.7 million.

The only project for the Peninsula increased in the budget is the renewal of Sewer Pump Station WW13C at Woy Woy Rd, which has increased by $240,702 from $382,450 to $623,152.

This is an "increased budget" for a "continuing project from 2023-24".

A new $875,000 project is listed for "change room renewals" at "various leisure centres", the capital works program does not specify whether this includes the Peninsula Leisure Centre or not.

The money will come from general revenue, which includes rates revenue.
