We engaged expert consultants to assist our review of the Council’s proposed capital and operating costs. We set prices to allow the Council to recover only the efficient costs of supplying its services. We also made decisions to:
- Set prices for three years.
- Reduce the Council’s proposed revenue by 10% (or $54 million) over three years.
- Align water and stormwater prices across the Central Coast.
- Maintain separate sewerage prices for the former Gosford and Wyong areas.
Under our prices, bills will fall for all residential and most non-residential customers. Bills will increase for some non-residential customers in the former Wyong area.
In making our decisions, we considered the impacts of our prices on the Council and its customers.
More information on our decisions is included in our Final Report.
