GAP Analysis CPCC & Strategic Plan

Below is a GAP analysis that compares the Community Plan Central Coast with the Council’s Community Strategic Plan.

This is an attempt to contribute to the Council’s strategic planning document. Please use it to deepen the policy areas not so far covered by the Council’s planning processes.

CPCC POLICY CATEGORIES




GAP ANALYSIS













1. GOVERN/ANTI-CORRUPTION








































2. COMMITMENT TO CONSULT








































3. ENVIRONMENT

CCC's Ph 1 CSP data re "nat env" & "over-develop't" & "lifestyle & comm'y" strongly support CPCC policy settings & actions



















Need further data and 'triage' concerning: sea rise; ocean pollution & acidification; ferals; unsustainable population rate/cap;



















See CPCC 3.2.3, 3.2.6, 3.2.8, 3.2.16] Consider a public forum/workshops re "CC Environment and CC Economy"
















4. ABORIGINAL & TSI

This entire category is neglected. The methodology needs direct & lengthy sessions with Guringai & Darkikinjung & add specific Q's



















directly concerning Aboriginal people to collect comprehensive data to help future policy development [see CPCC 4.1.3, 4.1.4]
















5. WORKERS & FAMILIES

This entire category is neglected. CCC needs an overview of workers on the Central Coast. CCC needs to acquire an overall view



















of the compliance with award rates, hours, gender equity, anti-bias, anti-bullying/intim. There appears to be no acknowledgement



















of basic work-related requirements such as child-care. [see CPCC 5.1.1, 5.1.2, 5.1.3]. Phase 1 data shed no light on this category.
















6. YOUTH

This entire category is neglected. This policy area requires priority and sharpened PURPOSE starting with an acceptance of the



















urgency for a comprehensive CC Youth Plan dovetailing with a study of CC Future Sustainable Jobs. [see CPCC 6.1.1, 6.2.1, 6.2.2,



















6.2.3, 6.2.4, 6.2.5]. This study must include overseas input from overwhelmingly successful initiatives: Milkman/Iceland/USA.



















Consider a public forum/workshops re "Youth Policy, Education, Innovation, Enterprise"
















7. CULTURE/ARTS/RECREATION

The CSP Phase 1 data is weak and indicates no policy direction. CCC should now act on CPCC actions 7.1.4 and 7.1.8
















8. HEALTH & HOSPITALS

This entire category is neglected. CCC needs an overview of the health & hospital deficiencies, especially from doctors & patients.



















CCC needs to acquire an overview of specifics [see CPCC 8.1.1, 8.1.2, 8.1.3, 8.1.4]. CSP Ph 1 data shed no light on this category.



















Consider a public forum/workshops re "Health & Hospitals in an Intelligent Community/Smart City"
















9. ROADS & TRANSPORT

CCC's Ph 1 CSP data re "road maintenance" & "public transport" & "parking" strongly support CPCC policy settings & actions which



















seek to commission independent analyses of: trains, buses, shared transport, freight, cycling … leading to a 10 year road plan



















That is, the Ph 1 CSP data tells us what we already know - we now need to urgently get data on all these matters [see CPCC 9.2]
















10. EDUCATION

CCC's Ph 1 CSP data re "educ" leads nowhere. The response is weak, probably because of the superficiality of the methodology. No



















analysis of gaps in ed provision, or connections to Youth Policy/Sustainable Industries/tech'y advanced economy. [see CPCC 10.1]
















11. SMALL BUSINESS

This entire category is neglected. CCC needs to develop, in concert with small businesses, academics, unions & independents, a



















"Study into the Encouragement & Support of Viable Small Business" [see CPCC, category 11]
















12. PENSIONERS

This entire category is neglected. CCC needs an overview of the needs of pensioners 32% of the adult pop'n, esp from pensioners.



















CCC needs to adopt CPCC actions 12.2.2, 12.2.3, 12.2.7 and 12.2.8. CSP Phase 1 data shed no light on this category.
















13. HOUSING

This category is neglected. No data from CSP is likely to assist policy development here.



















CCC should adopt a serious program of research [see CPCC actions 13.1.1, 13.2.1, 13.2.2]



















Consider a public forum/workshops re "Housing our residents … lifestyle, emergency, VETS, homeless"
















14. ECONOMY

CSP Ph 1 data strongly suggests commy support for stronger economy. There is even stronger support for maintaing our natural



















env & current lifestyles. Thus the CSP data points to an urgent need for a CCC plan which defends/enhances the env while dev'ping



















new & sustainable futuristic jobs. [see CPCC 14.2.1, 14.2.2, 14.2.3, 14.2.4, 14.2.5, 14.2.6, 14.2.7, 14.2.8, 14.2.9]



















Consider a public forum/workshops re "CC Environment and CC Economy in an Intelligent Community"
















15. SOCIAL COHESION-DEMOCR








































16. CARING

[see CPCC 16.1.1, 16.1.2] Even CSP's 'harder-to-reach' gps did not include these 5 priority categories of CC residents requiring care:
















[a] DISABILITY

[See CPCC 16.1.3.1, 16.1.3.2, 16.1.3.3, 16.1.3.7, 16.1.3.9]
















[b] DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

[See CPCC 16.1.4.2, 16.1.4.3]
















[c] HOMELESS

[See CPCC 16.1.1 "comprehensive analysis" … should be done urgently with experts in the field]
















[d] ADF VETS

[See CPCC 16.1.1 "comprehensive analysis" … should be done urgently with ADF VET orgs, and experts in the field]
















[e] UN-DIAGNOSED AND

[See CPCC 16.1.1 "comprehensive analysis" … should be done urgently with experts in the field]
















UNATTENDED MENTALLY ILL

Consider a public forum "Caring in an Intelligent Community", or series of public fora, designed to take each of these 5 categories to a 'triaged' series of recs to CCC.
















17. EMERGENCIES

Neither CSP or CPCC have done enough here.





































18. PUBLIC AMENITY








































19. POPULATION ON THE

Ph 1 CSP data indicate a strong community resistance to over-development and over-population. This needs to be investigated

















CENTRAL COAST
further, probably academically … with a view to presenting CCC with "options and consequences" for future consideration.



















Consider a public forum, or series of forums, "Central Coast Population - options and consequences"








































The methodology adopted by CSP has successfully identified the community's big frustrations: roads, public transport, parking,



















cleanliness, child care, arguably all work/existence-related - so not surprising that matters of lesser survival concern are not



















generating helpful data. CCC should now move to:



















[a] seriously designed public forums designed to interrogate issues, propose options, analyse options, consider consequences,



















propose policy directions, triage consequent actions



















[b] serious research-based data collection in several key policy areas [see CPCC recs above]
