Leigh Vaughan

Welcome to my website

Thank you to everyone for your good wishes to me as a now former Councillor. I was privileged to be appointed to the Interim Advisory Committee of the newly formed MidCoast Council, comprising the merger of Great Lakes, Greater Taree and Gloucester.

It was a very challenging year and I believe I gave of my best. The Committee worked well together and made a really positive conribution to the development of the new council.

After much soul-searching I decided not to stand for election to the new council in September 2017. It was not an easy decision.

I will of course continue to be committed to the interests of my communities,and am still involved in a number of community and musical organisations.

I have always worked for the good of our area and feel privileged to have served on Great Lakes Council for twelve years and the NSW Executive of Local Government for six years.

An active  contributor to the life of the region since 1975, I am  a hands-on person and always give of my best.

Forster Civic Precinct Development

Council has now lodged a planning proposal for a Gateway Determination with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to amend the LEP.

It’s intended that once the gateway determination is issued, that the planning proposal and development application for the entire project will be exhibited for community feedback and input
