WHAT'S IN STORE FOR MUNMORAH?

Council seeks feedback for future growth
TERRY COLLINS
CENTRAL Coast Council has a cohesive long-term plan for land use in the growing Lake Munmorah area and has asked for community feedback.
 
The Greater Lake Munmorah Structure Plan is on public exhibition until May 26, outlining a range of measures to ensure sustainable growth, liveability and employment opportunities for the area, which continues to attract new residents and tourists.
 
Council’s Director Environment and Planning Scott Cox said the draft plan was developed through significant analysis and stakeholder engagement, and set out to deliver a blueprint for growth while protecting the area’s “unique character and sensitive natural settings”.
 
“With a coherent framework for the development, facilitation of future growth and prosperity of the area, the plan identifies appropriate development footprints for new residential and employment land, relevant staging requirements, plus appropriate transport, environmental and open space networks,” Mr Cox said.
 
The study area is a collection of ten precincts connected by the Central Coast Highway – a biodiversity corridor; employment lands, Kingfisher Shores, sportsgrounds, Saliena Ave; Kamilaroo Ave; Chain Valley Bay, Northern Lake Munmorah, Southern Lake Munmorah; and Schools.
 
There is also information on projects taking place in surrounding suburbs which make up the planning area including Northern Lakes, San Remo, Budgewoi and Toukley.
An interactive online map will help you zone in on the areas that interest you.
 
Mayor Jane Smith said Greater Lake Munmorah continued to grow in population, industry and as a popular destination for both tourists and locals.
 
“This Structure Plan will ensure the future liveability of the area and plan for a flourishing economy and well-connected spaces, whilst also providing greater certainty for the community in regard to land usage,” Cr Smith said.
 
“Providing opportunities for the community to have their say is an integral stage in the development of this Structure Plan and the feedback will be used to finalise a plan that meets the need of the community - now and in the future.”
