The campaign to make the Central Coast a stand-alone region has ramped up, as the region remains lumped in with Greater Sydney’s lockdown. A petition has gained thousands of signatures, in support of the bid, and in particular to remove the postcode 2259.
Northern Central Coast resident Rhonda Bowen and her husband Michael, are in lockdown; although they are at least a 2 1/2 hour drive from the areas of concern. Ms Bowen believes strongly that the very ‘strict’ lockdown rules that are imposed for the ‘entire geo area’ doesn’t seem measured.
Rhonda joined Tracy on Newcastle In The Morning to discuss the impact of the lockdown on Central Coast residents.
