Wyong Regional Chronicle

Following on from the success of publishing the ever popular Peninsula News since 1999, and more recently the addition of Coast Community News covering the remainder of the Gosford LGA, Central Coast Newspapers extended that same successful style and formula to publish a fortnightly newspaper for Wyong Shire.
Wyong Regional Chronicle only carries news specific to post code areas 2258, 2259, 2261, 2262 and 2263, and in this way, is able to provide a wealth of information for readers interested in those areas.
The first edition of the Wyong Regional Chronicle was published on Monday, August 6, 2012. It is distributed to all businesses in the major CBDs in those post code areas, as well as in multiples of 50 to schools, clubs, newsagents, shopping malls, railway stations, libraries and service stations, in fact anywhere that large numbers of people are likely to be.
Experience has shown that, having a newspaper that concentrates on a small area rather than an entire region, has enormous community benefits. Events and activities that may not be included in a regional paper because of severe space restrictions are more likely to be included. Positive news on local school successes, sport (senior and junior) and general community events all have a better chance of being seen and promoted. As a result, they are all better supported by the community. The outcome on the Peninsula and in the remainder of the Gosford Local Government Area is there for all to see and this has also become evident in the Wyong Local Government Area.
Concentration on a smaller area is also extended to local, state and federal government activities so that readers will be much more aware of what those organisations are doing in their area and how it will affect them. Those government bodies are also under greater public scrutiny than they have been in the past. The good things that they do receive much more exposure and conversely, anything that is not to the public’s liking is also exposed.
Wyong Regional Chronicle is a public forum for debate on local issues. All residents, community groups, businesses, employees and visitors to the area are encouraged to send in contributions.
