Killingworth Paper Subdivision

The Killingworth Paper Subdivision consists of 24 residential lots that are owned by residential landowners and Council.

While much of the land has been rezoned for residential development, the land cannot be developed because it is not serviced with the necessary infrastructure such as roads, drainage, water, wastewater (sewer), communications and electricity. The land may also have high biodiversity values.

Council commissioned a Water and Wastewater Servicing Strategy for the subdivision which has now been assessed by Hunter Water with approval to extend water and sewer services to these lots. This approval is valid until 2023, so Council is seeking interest from landowners to potentially progress development for the subdivision.

In July 2021, Council adopted the draft Killingworth Paper Subdivision Area Plan and will amend the Lake Macquarie Development Control Plan 2014 to incorporate the draft Area Plan.

September 2023 update
