Woy Woy Leagues Club to close
ON a sad note, Woy Woy Leagues Club has closed permanently due to the impact of Coronavirus.

The club had suffered from falling revenue but with Covid-19 it’s future became bleak.
 
The club site located at 82-90 Blackwall Rd covers an area of 4500sqm. In 2017 concepts from a masterplan were announced which consisted of basement carparking, ground level club facilities and eight stories of senior living. However, they never eventuated.
 
The closure leads to an uncertain future for one of the coast's oldest senior rugby league clubs which produced many stars of the game.
 
Bonus year for Council
 
CENTRAL Coast Council will enjoy a bonus year in office because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
 
The election was due for September but the State Govt decided it would be impossible to hold it this year. It also means an extra year of service to the community for several councilors who had indicated they would not be standing again.
 
Mayor Lisa Matthews who is considered to have done a good job in trying circumstances will also hold her position for another years.
 
It may well provide a stable period for Council and ratepayers as the area gets back on its feet after possibly the worst year ever.
 
Dredging works
 
PREMINARY works have begun on repairing and surveying The Entrance channel for dredging works.
Works underway using council heavy machinery include replacing sand lost in the recent flood including erosion to the southern embankment
 
Interesting arguments
 
THE public submissions for the $350M Northside Private Hospital have concluded and there are some interesting arguments including the increased traffic flow in the area which is already congested.
 
The developers will now address the submissions before the project progresses. On the funnier side, one group said the Hospital would block views of Presidents Hill from drivers using Racecourse Rd.
 
Two resorts close
 
TWO of the region’s best-known resorts have had to close temporarily due to the Covid-19 restrictions
 
The Crowne Plaza at Terrigal announced that it had temporarily closed until further notice. Pullman at Magenta Shores also closed its doors to visitors.
 
Payroll payments
 
THE NSW Government has deferred payroll tax payments for all businesses for six months in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
Businesses with payrolls of $10M or less will also be eligible for a 25% reduction in their annual liabilities for 2019-20, when they complete their annual reconciliation. These businesses will save around $450M in payroll tax in 2019-20.
 
Recreation continues
 
RESIDENTS of the Central Coast are being urged to carry out their recreation within government guidelines, particularly on the region’s beaches, as changes are introduced.
 
Activities on all Central Coast beaches will now be restricted to exercise only including walking, running, and surfing.
