Families paid $7000 to move here
The State Government is promoting population growth on the Peninsula providing grants for Sydney people to move here.
Sydney families will be paid $7000 from July 1 to move to the Peninsula and other locations on the Central Coast, according to State Member for Gosford Cr Chris Holstein.
Announcing the grants scheme, deputy premier Mr Andrew Stoner said: "By moving to places like Ettalong Beach and Woy Woy, families can escape the high cost of living and congestion of life in the big smoke."
"This is a practical plan that will help us persuade Sydney families to pack up and move to the Central Coast," Cr Holstein said.
"The $7000 grants will encourage Sydney families who are sick of being stuck in traffic and struggling to pay their mortgage to join us here on the Coast.
"My message to people considering a move out of Sydney is simple - there is no better time to move to the Central Coast.
"We will welcome you with open arms."
Mr Stoner said the Regional Relocation Grants would encourage population and economic growth on the Central Coast.
"The NSW Government is determined to kick-start regional NSW by supporting population growth, creating jobs and improving infrastructure.
"As everyone who lives in regional NSW knows, our communities offer a more affordable lifestyle in beautiful surrounds.
"The NSW Liberals and Nationals Government is proud to be supporting the Central Coast and regional NSW by encouraging Sydney families who are considering a tree change," Mr Stoner said.
"The Central Coast is a great place to live, work and raise a family and now these $7000 grants give families considering a move out of Sydney extra motivation."
