Grant funding to repair Woy Woy baths and foreshore

Central Coast Council has been awarded $1,087,360 for the upgrade of Woy Woy foreshore, public swimming baths and accessibility upgrades, Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch has announced.

"It was wonderful to join Member for Robertson Dr Gordon Reid to celebrate this jointly-funded initiative by the Australian and NSW Governments.

Ms Tesch said the money would come through the Community Assets Program, to repair community infrastructure damaged by storm and flood events.

"Dr Reid and I will continue to work together for improved outcomes for our community," she said.

The money goes towards improvements which are not part of the Woy Woy foreshore masterplan project that are funded from general revenue, including rates.

"The grant funding for the upgrade of Woy Woy Foreshore, baths and accessible upgrades will be in addition to the allocated general revenue funding," said council chief executive Mr David Farmer.

"At this stage, the grant with the NSW Government is yet to have a funding deed signed.

"Once the deed is signed, design and approvals will commence with construction to follow.

"Further details will be announced as the project progresses."

In the NSW State of the Beaches report, released on October 19, Woy Woy Baths was graded as "poor".

It stated that this indicated "microbial water quality is susceptible to faecal pollution, particularly after rainfall and occasionally during dry weather conditions, with several potential sources of faecal contamination including stormwater and from elsewhere within Brisbane Water".

"Enterococci levels increased with increasing rainfall, often exceeding the safe swimming limit after little or no rain, and regularly after five millimetres or more."

The report showed the proportion of dry weather samples suitable for swimming was 73 per cent.
