Administrator Appointment 

Mr Rik Hart has been appointed as an Administrator for Central Coast Council by the Minister for Local Government, the Hon Shelley Hancock MP. This follows the Minister’s announcement on 26 April 2021 of a formal Public Inquiry into Central Coast Council led by Commissioner Ms Roslyn McCulloch.

The Council was suspended on 30 October 2020 and the formal inquiry now means that the local government elections scheduled for September 2021 will be postponed until late 2022 for Central Coast Council.

The Administrator will act as the Council, effectively replacing the role previously performed by the Mayor and Councillors. Mr Hart assumes the role of Administrator from Mr Dick Persson AM who had been in the role since October 2020.
