December 2020 update – and thank you!

Touching base with some quick updates on Killingworth Paper Subdivision before we close for the festive season.

Landowner meetings with Council

Firstly, thank you to the Killingworth landowners who met with us this month.

We appreciate you for taking the time to help us understand your current situations and aspirations for your lots. These meetings have been a vital step towards progressing an outcome for the area.

We’re hoping to have all one-on-one meetings with landowners completed early in the new year. Once finalised, we can make our recommendations for the way forward, including the most suitable funding pathway for the development of services.

Killingworth URA Area Plan

From our recent discussions with landowners, we’ve identified the need to develop an Area Plan for the Killingworth URA (Urban Release Area).

We will begin drafting the document in the new year to provide a coordinated and strategic approach to the development of the land. The Area Plan will also ensure that any future development of the land is completed in an efficient manner, considering environmental, social and economic issues affecting the site. This will meet the requirements under the Lake Macquarie Local Environmental Plan 2014 (LMLEP2014) and enable Council to permit development applications that meet the objections of this Area Plan.

We anticipate the Plan will be presented to Council and exhibited before June 2021. We’ll be sure to update you on the progress of the Plan in the new year.
