Interactive online map of council-managed land

An interactive online map of council-managed land on the Peninsula is now available, courtesy of Peninsula News.

The map has been prepared to help residents understand Central Coast Council's draft Plan of Management for Community Land, which is currently on exhibition.

It is based on the community land listed in the draft plan and compares it with Gosford Council's 2014 land register for the Peninsula.

Umina data visualisation specialist Mr Craig Dewar volunteered his time to create the map for Peninsula News.

The map shows land identified as "operational" by Gosford Council as well as other land, such as Crown land, managed by the council at the time.

The map can be filtered to show land that is only on the Gosford Council list (205 parcels), that is on both lists (307 parcels) or is only in the draft Plan (34 parcels).

A description of each parcel, including its common name or description, is displayed when the mouse points to it.

The map can be zoomed and panned to see more detail.

A filter can be applied to show only those parcels that the council is treating as new categories or aims to reclassify.

Another filter allows the community land parcels of a particular category (eg park) to be displayed, and another can be used to display parcels that were covered by a plan of management in 2014.

The interactive map can be found at

Mr Dewar has also created a series of interactive graphs, which chart rainfall recorded on the Peninsula over 18 years by Mr Jim Morrison of Umina.

The charts can be found at

Public submissions about the Community Land Plan of Management can be made to Central Coast Council until Wednesday, March 1.
