Petition Tag - central coast
The NSW Government announced in May 2012 it plans to relocate an unspecified number of the 600 WorkCover jobs currently in Gosford back to Sydney.
This will create chaos for those workers and their families. Just 10 years ago the-then government encouraged WorkCover staff to move to the coast. It even offered financial assistance to do so.
This time there will be no financial assistance to relocate back to Sydney. Central Coast staff affected by the plan will have to pay for the move.
The Central Coast economy needs to retain government jobs. The Premier, Barry O'Farrell, needs to keep jobs on the coast.
The Second Sydney Airport is an ongoing proposition for another airport to supplement or replace the existing Kingsford Smith Airport in Sydney, Australia.
Estimated to cost between $6 and $8 billion, governments of the past 30 years have not pursued the issue. Mayor of Gosford Laurie Maher and Mr Eaton have endorsed a proposal assembled and funded by Cardno Global Infrastructure Services Consultancy, which lobbied the government to put the second airport on the Central Coast. They have said that community feedback had been largely positive.
This petition has been set up to show we 'the community' are completely against a second airport, against the polluting of our clean, quality air, against destruction of the its "stunning and diverse natural environment"~ "exquisite natural beauty" (Ref- NSW Health Dept.)-
Gosford and Wyong are perfectly located between Sydney and Newcastle airports. In a survey conducted by Gosford Council the most popular reasons residents gave for living on the Central Coast were “lifestyle” and “environment”.
If a second airport is consented, the community and our children would loose all of this forever. This is why you need sign this petition to let them know we are against their decision.

The NRL plans to expand the NRL competition to 16 teams for the 2007 season.
A 17 team NRL competition would increase the areas Rugby League so desperatly needs to get in touch with. Both the Gold Coast and Central Coast have submitted impressive bids for entry to the NRL and should be admitted to the competition.
The North Sydney Bears are one of Australia's oldest Rugby League clubs. Established in 1908 the Bears were a foundation club of Australia's premier Rugby League competition. The Bears have a proud history and a strong and committed supporter base. In 1999 the Bears were inexplicabley booted out of the NRL and forced to merge with neighbours the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles to become the Northern Eagles. The joint venture was dominated by Manly and Bears fans lost patience with the new club. The joint venture eventually fell over at the end of the 2002 season, leaving the Bears waiting on the outside. Since the collapse of the Northern Eagles, the North Sydney Bears Rugby League Football Club and Mr John Singleton have been plotting for the Return of the Bears on the NSW Central Coast. The Bears proposed to move to the Central Coast before there collapse in 1999. The Bears have had an association with the area for many years and numerous Central Coast juniors have worn the famous Red and Black.
The Bears bid will be known as the Central Coast Bears and will wear the Red and Black of the North Sydney Club. They will retain the famous history and will have "foundation club" appear on their logo.
If the NRL has any sense, the Bears will be to 16th team admitted to the NRL for the 2007 season!
