Minister for Planning and Housing, Anthony Roberts last month announced the appointment of a coordinator general to oversee the revitalisation and growth of the NSW Central Coast.
Mr Roberts said Lee Shearer APM, former NSW Police Force assistant commissioner and most recently, the chief compliance officer for the state’s resource regulator, would take up the position of Central Coast Coordinator General.
The newly-created role will be responsible for driving the delivery of the Central Coast Regional Plan aimed at unlocking employment opportunities for locals, fast track housing supply and improving infrastructure in the area.
“The Central Coast is an area that is predicted to grow by more than 75,000 people in the next 20 years and we are committed to help the region grow economically, meaning more jobs, housing and infrastructure,” Mr Roberts said.
“The new role will help deliver the needs of the community, which will include identifying economic opportunities, accelerating housing and removing any roadblocks to implementing the regional plan.
