Central Coast Regional Infrastructure Priorities for 2016-17
Regional Development Australia Central Coast has coordinated unprecedented regional collaboration in the development of the Central Coast Regional Infrastructure Priorities.
The estimated resident population of the Central Coast is in the order of 409,450 with an additional 70,000 people predicted to live in the region over the next twenty years. This substantial growth will require over 30,000 new jobs to be created over the next 20 years.
To respond to this demand, RDA Central Coast has coordinated the development of the Central Coast Infrastructure Priorities, which provides an agreed list of the key-enabling infrastrcuture needed on the Central Coast to grow investment and employment.
The ‘Central Coast Region Infrastructure Priorities’ has been prepared and informed by unprecedented collaboration between members of the Regional Economic Development and Employment Strategy (REDES) Strategy Implementation Group, which includes:
- Regional Development Australia Central Coast
- Department of Premier and Cabinet
- Department of Industry
- Central Coast Council
- Central Coast Regional Development Corporation
- NSW Business Chamber
- Central Coast Tourism
The following criteria has been used by members of the group to form the 2014 infrastructure priority list.
- The project can be delivered within 4 years (of funding approval).
- The project is achievable, ie. scope defined, cost established, planning approval in place or process defined.
- Project funding has not already been committed.
- Timing of infrastructure aligns with funding opportunities.
- The infrastructure must enable the delivery of additional and new regional benefit, e one investment delivers multiple outcomes.
- The request for funding must be at a realistic and achievable level.
The projects contained in the Infrastructure Priority List are expected to create in excess of 16,000 new local jobs over the next 10 years and will lay a strong foundation for further growth and investment over the following decades.
Please note that the following infrastructure project list is a dynamic list that will be reviewed regularly to ensure that projects reflect the changing priorities and opportunities within the region.
