Focus on the Coast

Regional Development Australia - Central Coast NSW Inc (RDACC) has been established as a conduit between governments and the community. RDACC is facilitating Focus on the Coast forums to provide local residents with the opportunity to participate in a consultative process that identifies priorities, aligns resources and promotes solutions. These forums will enable the community to provide input to governments about issues and opportunities in our local area.

Focus on the Coast forums are held monthly at the RDACC offices, starting at 5.30pm.
