Umina oval and leisure centre are major budget items

Upgrades to the Umina oval area and the Peninsula Leisure Centre's air-conditioner are the major works in Central Coast Council's budget for the Peninsula for the coming year.

The Rawson Rd roundabout upgrade, works at Woy Woy tip and the Woy Woy waterfront redevelopment are features of the following two years.

Central Coast Council's draft budget for 2022-23 shows grant funding expenditure of $13 million on the Peninsula for the year and $4.65 million in general-rates revenue spending.

Grant funding will cover work on the Rawson Rd-Ocean Beach Rd intersection ($3.61 million), an upgrade to Springwood St ($2.22 million) and "pavement renewal" in Barrenjoey Rd ($752,000).

However, most of the grant money will go towards the Umina skate park upgrade ($2.85 million) and other works around Umina oval, totalling $5.94 million.

This includes "building renewal" for the Etta Rd amenities ($1.84 million) and the Melbourne Ave amenities ($1.25 million), as well as $500,000 for the Sydney Ave access road and car park upgrade.

A total of $33.0 million in grants is being spent over the next three years.

A further $1.13 million will be spent on Barrenjoey Rd, $1.35 million on the skate park, and $17.5 million on the Rawson Rd-Ocean Beach Rd intersection.

The largest expenditure from general-rates revenue this year is $1.98 million for the Peninsula Leisure Centre's air-conditioner replacement.

The next largest expenditure from the $4.65 million general-rates revenue budget is , $810,000 at Woy Woy tip, including $600,000 for the "south cell"; $665,000 to renew the Lagoon St sewage pump and $590,000 for escarpment stabilisation at Castle Circuit, Homan Cl and Greenhaven Dr.

Other capital expenditure includes $100,000 for the Everglades catchment drainage upgrade, $121,000 for lighting at James Brown Oval, and a $110,000 playground renewal at Gurdon Reserve, Woy Woy Bay.

A sum of $250,000 has been allocated for a "trash rack" at Palmtree Grove, Umina, and $44,000 for the Peninsula Child Care roof replacement.

A total of $6.67 million has been allocated from general revenue to the tip over the next three years, including $4.7 million for the "south cell" in years two and three and $750,000 to construct an "eastern platform".

Another $4.93 million is allocated to other Peninsula projects in years two and three.

This includes $1.2 million for the Woy Woy waterfront redevelopment, including $300,000 for an upgrade to the Lions Park playground, and $1 million for a shared path on The Esplanade.

It includes $570,000 in car park upgrades at James Brown Oval and Rogers Park, and $640,000 on the Rip Rd reserve seawall at Blackwall.

Scheduled for year three is $200,000 to be spent on the Pearl Beach lagoon management and $270,000 for conversion of the Umina library annexe to meeting rooms.

Comment on the draft Delivery Program which contains the draft Council budget may be made until June 21.
