Lake Mac 2050

By 2050, 50,000 more people will live in Lake Macquarie. Technology will have changed the way we live, work, play. Driverless cars will be part of our daily life and climate change will have a real impact.

We're making an exciting land use plan to make sure Lake Mac is ready for the future. This will develop high-level directions for the future of housing, transport, recreation, the environment, and the economy in Lake Mac.

Flexibility to allow for changing technology and employment, more apartment-living in town centres, extensive walking and cycling networks, better public transport options, and plenty of public places for people to enjoy are some of the ideas on the table.

From 8 September – 27 October 2017, we checked in with the community to see if Council is heading in the right direction for our new land use strategy. You can view our community engagement report here. We will now take the feedback and start work on the draft Strategy, which we expect to exhibit in mid 2018.
