Plan for new Honeysuckle public domain

Filed under Cityscape, Council, News ~ by Press on  11 Jan 2019

Honeysuckle’s future public domain plan is available for download at the Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation (HCCDC) website.

The Honeysuckle Foreshore Public Domain Plan is a comprehensive proposal across four key areas in the western end of Honeysuckle.

HCCDC’s plan will develop Worth Place Park West, Cottage Creek, Tree of Knowledge Park and the Waterfront Promenade.

The transformation of Honeysuckle is an enormous success story for Newcastle and these plans are part of the next stage, which will see HCCDC invest more than $55million into infrastructure and public domain works over coming years,” said HCCDC Chief Executive Michael Cassel.

These include seawall works to underpin the future public domain, the delivery of superior landscaping, and the realignment of Honeysuckle Drive to help mitigate any future flooding issues in the precinct.”

Through this plan, we will be linking one side of the city to another, with attractive and wide promenades stretching from the Marina, through Honeysuckle and along Bathers Way to Merewether Beach.

Our intention is to plant over 150 trees across the two hectares, and we will be doubling the size of Tree of Knowledge Park as well as greatly improving and enhancing natural assets like the Cottage Creek precinct,” said Mr Cassel.

Over coming months, HCCDC will prepare detailed designs and seek City of Newcastle approvals to deliver the new public domain.
