A taskforce will be set up to establish a new university near Warnervale following further successful talks with senior Department of Education officials in Canberra last week.
Wyong Shire Council Mayor Doug Eaton and Federal Member for Dobell Karen McNamara MP described the trip to Canberra as extremely fruitful.  “I’m confident that our proposal to establish a university campus at Warnervale will be successful,” Clr Eaton said.

“We met with two senior officials from the Department and gave them an overview of the university project and the tertiary education needs of the Central Coast. They understood the need for a significant increase in tertiary education provision on the Coast and the advantages of the proposed site at Warnervale,” he said.

The proposed Warnervale campus and associated business park would cater for 7,000 students and create 1,500 permanent jobs.  It is proposed to complement the existing tertiary education offerings on the Coast.
