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.
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 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”.
For maximum exposure leading up to the election, the plan will be published on a number of web sites and social media platforms. There may be minor differences of formatting and presentation. The Executive Summary is a late addition, it was not part of the original Community Plan.
Further direct community engagement will be available in the form of a special purpose “wiki” using the open source “Wikimedia” software which is used to power WikiPedia, to be launched shortly after the election at Central Coast Wiki for registration of interested residents to participate.
