About Council

Council's Role and Responsibilities

Gosford City Council exists to provide an informed decision-making body that develops the local community and its resources in a responsible way.

It ensures that local public services and facilities respond effectively to community needs.

Council provides a range of day to day services for the people who live in the Gosford LGA, including:

  • Libraries, community centres and halls;
  • Recreation facilities, such as swimming pools and sporting fields;
  • Infrastructure such as our local roads, buildings, sewerage and drainage, bridges, boat ramps and skate parks;
  • Environmental and public health services;
  • Waste management, including recycling and landfill disposal facilities;
  • Water supply;
  • Planning and development services; and
  • Services for specific groups in our community, such as senior citizens, people with disabilities, young people and Indigenous people. 

Council also employs a wide range of administrative, technical, professional and outdoor staff to carry out the work of Gosford City Council and ensure our residents receive the public services and facilities they require.
