Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch has welcomed the sod turning of the new Gosford campus of the University of Newcastle, hailing it as a great milestone and product of the former Coalition Government’s investment into education on the Central Coast.
“I welcome the sod turning of the University of Newcastle’s Gosford campus which will be a massive addition to education in our region, supporting an additional 900 students in our region.”
“I was very proud to be part of the former Coalition government that worked with the University of Newcastle to get this project off the ground, providing the University with the site worth more than $12 million and an additional $18 million in capital funding through the Six Cities Commission.”
Mr Crouch said that with the sod-turning of the new campus in Gosford, the Minns Labor Government needed to follow through with the Coalition’s education plan for the Central Coast.
“The groundwork for a brand-new TAFE site in Gosford was already planned, designed and announced by the former Coalition government and was to go hand-in-hand with the new university campus.”
“The Minns Labor Government need to fully fund the construction of this new TAFE site which will establish the Central Coast as regional powerhouse for education.”
