New planning controls to start in August, says Crouch
The finalisation of the region's new Local Environmental Plan will see the Central Coast community, council and development industry benefit from simplified planning rules, according to Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Mr Adam Crouch.
He said the new Plan combines planning guidelines from the former Gosford and Wyong council areas into one comprehensive rulebook.
"The Central Coast has been operating under five different planning documents since Gosford and Wyong were amalgamated in 2016, each with separate controls," Mr Crouch said.
"This new Plan creates consistency, cohesion and clarity for the community, investors, and council staff when preparing and assessing development applications."
The Central Coast Local Environmental Plan and Development Control Plan will come into effect from August 1.
