About Us

Central Coast Friend of Democracy (CCFoD) is a community initiative and not affiliated with any political party. CCFoD was launched on 12 May 2021 by Jane Smith, a community advocate for over 20 years and elected to Central Coast Council in 2017.

The aim of CCFoD is to strengthen local democracy. 

Our focus areas are:

  • restoring local democracy and reclaiming our Council  - this includes asking the question about a Council de-merger
  • A stronger NSW ICAC and a Federal Integrity Commission with teeth
  • Urgent action on climate change
  • Active and resilient local communities and neighbourhoods
  • Ecologically sustainable development (ESD)
