The Community Plan Central Coast aims to articulate “our preferred future” in numerous policy areas.
It is a Community Plan for the entire Central Coast that has been developed as a non-party-political policy document.
Update – 2019
This site outlines the contribution of a large number of policy specialists and concerned citizens over a period of 10 months, leading up to the election of the new merged council.
Fast-forward 18 months and we’re facing both state and federal elections in quick succession.
This Plan has the best credentials to form the foundation of policy for both governments, and is well worth review by residents of the Central Coast. We encourage all candidates to adopt the work and plans put forwdavyard here.
We periodically talk to Councillors,local MPs and candidates to advocate for the policies.

Council’s Strategic Plan
The plan was instigated by Dr Van Davy & Marcelle Hoff, both strong independent candidates. This current version commenced development in November 2016 and has come to fruition after a series of disciplined public workshops that have been held to develop the policies and actions.
The Plan has been presented to a series of community groups for comment and published online. Input has been sought from sector specialists and experts. Online suggestions and improvements have been received over a two month period earlier this year and incorporated into the Plan as appropriate.
The Plan is deliberately ambitious, seeking to create a culture of leadership and vision for the entire Central Coast region through advocacy, collaboration and cooperative action.
The people involved in the plan consider the Plan a working document, several policy areas are less than complete and others are being improved. This version will remain “static” until after the Central Coast Council elections on Saturday, September 9, 2017.
After the council election, the Plan will be placed in an appropriate forum in which its
development can continue to make this organic, living document relevant to deliver “our preferred future”.
