Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council endorsed the Lake Macquarie Private Hospital Planning Proposal at the Ordinary Council meeting on Monday 24 April 2023. The Lake Macquarie Environmental Plan 2014 amendment has been gazetted and will be in force from 26 June 2023.

Over the last several decades, the Lake Macquarie Private Hospital has grown and expanded. The hospital and adjacent consulting suites are operating at or near capacity. Additional floorspace is required to provide additional health services to meet the needs of the growing Lake Macquarie population, as well as the wider Hunter region.

The planning proposal outlines amendments to building heights from 10m to 37m in the Lake Macquarie Local Environmental Plan 2014 (LMLEP 2014), applying to the northern part of the Lake Macquarie Private Hospital at Gateshead. It also proposed to rezone the site from R3 Medium Density Residential to SP2 Infrastructure (Health Services Facilities), to better reflect the current use of the site.
