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.

Funding and timing for infrastructure

In new subdivisions, the developer builds the infrastructure prior to the sale of allotments and the cost of this infrastructure is reflected in the sale price of the land. The Killingworth Paper Subdivision was registered under old legislation that did not require services and infrastructure to be provided by the developer. Therefore, the costs to provide infrastructure to the land will need to be met by landowners. Council is committed to working with landowners to assist the provision of infrastructure to the land.
