Essential works continue
for Central Coast community
Central Coast Council is assuring the community that essential services will continue in line with the additional COVID-19 restrictions recently announced by the NSW Government.
20 July 2021
THE NSW Government announced that as from Monday 12:01am on 19 July 2021, work at construction sites in Greater Sydney including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour, is not to be carried out unless the work is urgently required.
Council Chief Executive Officer, David Farmer said the community can be assured that Council is following the requirements of the latest announcement.
“Under this Order, construction works may continue where urgent, including to maintain public utilities and to ensure the safe operations of existing transport infrastructure, which means our work for the community is largely not impacted.
“Council will continue to undertake work to maintain public facilities and provide essential services including water and sewer services, waste collection, road repairs and childcare services.
“Our parks and beaches remain open for exercise only and please note that lifeguard services are not in operation during the cooler months. We are also continuing the cleaning of public toilets for the health and safety of our community.
“It is now a requirement that anyone who leaves their home must carry a mask with them at all times. They must be worn when working outdoors, by all people in outdoor markets, outdoor shopping strips, and in an outdoor queue waiting for products such as coffee and food.
“We know what is required to get COVID-19 outbreaks under control and we thank the community for doing your part in following the NSW Government Orders and understanding the necessary changes that we all need to live by.”
Please refer to Council website and social media channels for the latest information on necessary temporary closures of some facilities and any impacts to our services.
Council has implemented measures to help protect the safety of its staff and community during the current COVID-19 resurgence. Council’s response remains unchanged and will continue until stay at home orders are lifted with all essential services continuing to be delivered but required facilities and sites are temporarily closed.
