Development controls - Smart technology

Consultation has concluded

Help shape our draft Smart Technology Development Control Guidelines

Together, we’ll explore the opportunities for smarter technologies to enhance development and smart city investment, drive innovation and improve community and sustainability outcomes in Lake Macquarie, in line with the Lake Macquarie Smart City, Smart Council Digital Economy Strategy.

Over the coming months, Council is partnering with industry professionals and the community to create development control guidelines to support sustainable development. Our focus is now on smart technology.

These new guidelines will assist the development industry and community to navigate development controls and streamline information needed to complete sustainable developments in Lake Macquarie. Throughout the development of these new guidelines, Council will work together with industry and community to ensure we find the best and most practical solutions.

The aspects of smart and emerging technology we would like to focus on include:

  • Wireless networks
  • Big data
  • Smart parking
  • Smart street lighting
  • Smart environmental and utility monitoring
  • Smart transport
  • Smart homes

Thank you those who attended the community workshops and provided feedback, suggestions and ideas to Council, the next step is to combine the comments from the workshop with our online submissions and begin the development of guidelines. We'll provide a draft guideline for comment in late June/early July.
