Gosford Erina Business Chamber’s 75 years

Gosford Erina Business Chamber’s 75th Annual General Meeting held in early November saw three new Directors come onto the Board.  They are Mel Archer, Mia Van Tubbergh and Peggoty Koszek

They replace former President and Director of over 16 years Rod Dever and Petrina Waddel who was also a director for around the same time as well as Gabbie Bowles who was on the Board for the last three years.

In welcoming the new Directors to the Board, President Peter Lawley OAM said that the Chamber this year would be focussing on progressing its Strategy Plan.

He also acknowledged the retiring Directors and thanked them for their efforts.

In his President’s Report he said: During those 75 years there has been many changes, and I would think that with 18 cranes currently in place in the CBD and surrounding areas, some of the most significant changes are on the cusp of occurring for Gosford, the Capital City of the Central Coast.

The Chamber, during the year actively worked with Council on projects, including the Kibble Park Upgrade, Safer Cities - her way, and let’s talk Gosford.

Council is to be congratulated on progressing these plans, involving key stakeholders and action occurring because of feedback, particularly in street scape and safety improvements.

As we have highlighted in previous years, the development of Newcastle University at the northern end of Gosford is progressing and this is a most welcome improvement. GEBC will continue to lobby for the redevelopment of the current TAFE site and former Council Chambers to provide an educational bookend for the CBD. In addition, the opportunity to create affordable housing on the current TAFE is too good an opportunity to be missed.
