Update on Killingworth Paper Subdivision
Thanks very much for completing our recent landowner survey. With the end of the year fast approaching, we wanted to provide a project update, as well as share key survey results.
Information collected from the survey helped us understand how landowners would like to use the land. The results will help guide our decisions about how best to proceed with this project.
Ninety per cent of landowners responded to the survey, which is a fantastic result. All of the responses indicated that you collectively would like the land to be serviced with roads, water, sewer and electricity, with most respondents wanting the connections to occur immediately or within the next five years.
As previously discussed, Council received approval from Hunter Water Corporation to extend water and sewer services to the paper subdivision lots from mains beneath Westcroft and Park Streets and The Boulevarde. This approval is based on the Water and Wastewater Servicing Strategy and is valid only for a limited time. Substantial water and sewer works will need to be underway before June 2023 to meet approval conditions.
The positive responses have prompted us to further investigate concept designs for the area. We hope to receive required information by early next year for the design of road and stormwater drainage as well as advice for biodiversity and bushfire requirements. These will inform our next landowner update scheduled for March 2020.
