Premier Dominic Perrottet has announced plans to build a new, TAFE NSW campus in the Gosford CBD.
The new campus will be built as part of the Central Coast Education and Employment Precinct.
A business case is now underway for the vertical TAFE campus on Mann Street in the heart of Gosford, located close to retail businesses and local public transport.
The proposal will integrate TAFE NSW with the Central Coast Conservatorium of Music, providing them with a permanent home.
The Premier said the campus along with the Education and Employment Precinct will create 1,000 local jobs and up to 3,000 tertiary and vocational education opportunities.
“The growth, innovation and evolution of the Central Coast Education and Employment Precinct will underpin the economy of the area as well as provide greater access to jobs, goods and services,” Mr Perrottet said.
Landcom will develop the site.
Landcom CEO John Brogden said the proposed vertical TAFE campus would free up land for redevelopment that will act as the catalyst for the renewal of the Gosford CBD.
“This site provides the potential for delivery of high-quality housing targeting more affordable ownership and rental with excellent access to facilities and transport in the Gosford CBD,” he said.
