“This major project will deliver essential infrastructure for the region, create much needed local employment, directly enhance tourism and boost economic activity within the region” Mr Walker said.

The Regional Development Australia Central Coast Board is pleased that Wyong Shire Council has taken the initial steps required to commence this essential project and the Board looks forward to supporting Council throughout the life of the project.

Regional Development Australia Central Coast Chief Executive Officer, Mr John Mouland said that “regionally significant initiatives such as a regional airport are a great step forward in addressing the long term needs of the Central Coast.
