Four key areas comprise Council’s strategic plan to grow the City in the next 20 years. 

The ambitious plan will transform Lake Macquarie City into one of the most productive, adaptable, sustainable and liveable places in Australia,” Lake Macquarie Mayor Cr Kay Fraser said.

We already have a strong foundation – we are a progressive city, well known for our innovation, investment opportunities, outdoor adventures, liveability, and of course our natural beauty.

Council’s Manager Integrated Planning Wes Hain said that under the NSW Government planning reforms all NSW Councils are required to prepare Local Strategic Planning Statements. 

Our draft Plan includes strategies and actions across seven planning priorities that detail how we will achieve the goal for the City to be one of the most productive, adaptable, sustainable and liveable places in Australia,” said Mr Hain.

The plan also reflects global, national and regional plans, to ensure our City contributes to broader regional, national and global communities, environments and economies.

The draft Plan identifies four key growth areas – North East from Charlestown to Belmont, South East between Caves Beach and North Wallarah, North West including Cardiff, Glendale and surrounds, and the South West spanning Cooranbong to Wyee. I would encourage people to take a look at the draft Plan and share their feedback.”

The draft Local Strategic Planning Statement is available by visiting shape.lakemac.com.au/shaping-the-future or your local library.

Consultation on the draft Plan closes on Friday 29 November.
