It's a dirty word for many ratepayers, but a special environmental levy has been floated as a way of helping protect the Central Coast waterways, beaches and Parklands. Central Coast Parliamentary Secretary Scott McDonald said an environmental levy would provide a war chest for the local council to dip into when urgent works needed to be done, such as the dredging of the metal on channel. He cited the former Great Lakes counsel as an example of proactive long term environmental management. A special environmental levy was introduced by the Great Lakes Council in 2001 and renewed in 2004 and 2009. With strong community support. It's allowed for many successful and award winning projects across the Great Lakes.
