Central Coast Council has prepared a draft Strategy to guide the next 20 years of development along the 25km stretch of land that joins Somersby to Erina along the Central Coast Highway known as the Southern Economic Corridor.

Council Director, Environment and Planning, Scott Cox said the draft Strategy will guide growth and investment in the six centres of Somersby, Mount Penang and Kariong, West Gosford, Gosford City Centre, East Gosford and Erina as well as implement directions of the NSW Government as part of the Central Coast Regional Plan 2036.

The vision of the Draft Somersby to Erina Corridor Strategy is threefold – to create a thriving Gosford City centre with employment opportunities, housing choice, events, education, restaurants, bushwalks and rides, shopping, culture and waterfront activities that rival any city; to create an exciting urban lifestyle within minutes of the water and incredible bushlands and National Parks; and to deliver a corridor that experiences balanced, quality growth so that each centre retains its sense of place and community.

Mayor Jane Smith said the creation of the strategy provides an opportunity to visualise the future of this important corridor.

As part of the public exhibition, Community Workshops will be held to discuss the Draft Strategy between Wednesday 6 March and Tuesday 12 March:

Wednesday 6 March - 5pm – 7pm
Erina Room, Erina Library | Erina Fair Shopping Centre

Friday 8 March - 1pm – 3pm
