Central Coast Council management and staff would like to wish the community a happy festive season.
With what is expected to be the busiest summer season on record, bringing a much-welcomed economic boost to the region and small businesses, Central Coast Council is reminding the community and visitors to be extra vigilant these holidays.
The ‘Coast Summer Safety’ campaign highlights important safety messages for this unique season encouraging everyone to put safety at front of mind, including COVID-safety, preparing for extreme La Niña and other extreme weather events as well as important safety reminders for when ‘out and about’, travelling and celebrating.
