    The $63.9 million draft Belmont Catchment Development Contributions Plan unveiled last month is now on exhibition until 14 March 2018. The draft Plan covers a large part of southeastern Lake Macquarie from Belmont to Moonee and caters for an additional 7250 people by 2030.

    Lake Macquarie City Council is inviting community feedback on the draft Plan to ensure that as development happens, it provides funding for the right community infrastructure, open space and recreational facilities needed in the area to service increases in population and business.

    Council’s Development Contributions Coordinator, Deborah Scott, said community feedback helps Council put forward the best plan for the area.

    “With input from the community, Council can make changes to the draft Plan to better suit the people who live and work in south-east Lake Macquarie,” Ms Scott said.

    “Community members and business owners can tell us their ideas or provide feedback on the plan through Council’s Shape Lake Mac website, or by post or email.

    “The draft Plan details the way developer contributions are collected and how they are proposed to be used by Council to provide enhanced community and recreational facilities.

    “Section 94 contributions that have been paid, and will be paid to Council, will be used to fund the facilities in this plan.”

    The draft Plan proposes more than 50 projects including 44 open space and recreational facilities developments, and seven bus shelter and four community facility upgrades.

    The draft Belmont Catchment Development Contributions Plan covers the area between Belmont and the southeastern City border, including the suburbs of Belmont, Belmont South, Marks Point, Pelican, Caves Beach, Swansea, Murrays Beach, Catherine Hill Bay, Nords Wharf, Moonee and parts of Valentine and Belmont North.

    The previous contributions plan delivered new facilities such as the Swansea Multipurpose Centre with an upgrade to Lake Mac Libraries Swansea branch, and netball courts at Belmont.

    Tell us what you think of the draft Plan or share your ideas about what is needed in these areas at shape.lakemac.com.au/belmont-contributions before Wednesday 14 March 2018.
