Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Paul Scully said construction is expected to commence within
the next 12 months, supporting an estimated 104 jobs.
“Governments at all levels have a shared responsibility to address the state’s housing crisis and we’re
working with councils to help them deliver the vital infrastructure they need for growing communities.
“This funding supports projects that help to unblock development approvals and enable development
activity, speeding up the delivery of housing supply in areas of need,” Mr Scully said.
Minister for the Central Coast David Harris said 400 homes would be supported by the investment.
“The Central Coast Regional Plan predicts population growth of more than 56,000 people in the 20
years from 2021 so it’s essential that we invest now for more homes and jobs.
“Our region is one of the best places in the world to live. We want to keep it that way with more
investment in quality housing and the infrastructure needed to support growth,” Mr Harris said.
Member for Swansea Yasmin Catley said the new sporting complex would promote healthy and more
active lifestyles for residents in and around San Remo, Blue Haven, Halekulani, and Budgewoi.
“This is fantastic news, offering many benefits for sports groups, families, and individuals,” Ms Catley

Waterloo, Box Hill, and Ryde, as well as improved pedestrian connectivity in Parramatta. Construction
of all five of the funded projects is due to be completed by 30 June 2026.
