Iconic Development of Key Sites

Wyong Shire Council is facilitating the development of a number of Key Development Sites throughout the Shire in a move that has been broadly supported by the Department of Planning.

Council has identified 28 sites throughout the Shire with the ability to generate significant economic return and revitalise its town centres.

Council identified sites at The Entrance, Wyong, Long Jetty, Toukley, Kanwal, Lake Haven and Warnervale as having potential to be a catalyst for economic growth and development confidence.

The sites have been chosen on their ability to provide a significant economic benefit to the community, stimulate further development and provide a significant public domain benefit.

Land owners and developers will receive a number of benefits and incentives for developing these key sites.

Some of these incentives include allowances for additional height and staged developer contributions in return for design excellence, green building design and developments that provide significant public domain improvements such as streetscape improvements, cycleways, public art and community facilities.

This is an incredible opportunity for Council to develop planning controls and encourage quality development in Wyong Shire.

Mayor Doug Eaton said the Iconic Development Sites project was a way in which Council can play a greater role in facilitating economic growth in the Shire.

The community will have an opportunity to provide input into the process by being able to comment on a number of key documents and controls that are being developed.
