Consultation has concluded

At its Ordinary meeting on Monday 23 October 2023, Council endorsed the planning proposal for Trinity Point and will request the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces make the required amendment to the Lake Macquarie Local Environment Plan 2014.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the planning proposal.

The planning proposal is to amend controls to permit a larger scale mixed use tourism and residential development if design excellence is achieved. It also permits a helipad as an additional land use within the existing marina consistent with the existing helipad approval and fixes mapping anomalies with a portion of foreshore land and road reserve.

    The community and stakeholders are being invited to have their say on a planning proposal for the Trinity Point tourist site at Morisset Park.

    The proposal seeks to increase building heights and allow for a greater mix of tourism and residential accommodation on the waterfront site on Lake Macquarie’s south-western shores.

    Lake Macquarie City Council’s Manager Integrated Planning Wes Hain said continued development of the Trinity Point site had the potential to draw new residents and tourists to Lake Macquarie, but this growth needed to be balanced with social and environmental impacts.

    “Lake Macquarie is a growing city with so much to offer interstate and international visitors, and the south-west of our city is increasingly becoming a hotspot for this sort of economy-boosting activity,” Mr Hain said.

    “This change to planning controls would allow a significant tourist and residential development, so I encourage the community to take a look at this proposal and share their feedback with us.”

    In addition to increasing building heights, the proposal seeks to recognise the helipad, which is consistent with previous development approvals, and to rezone a portion of Council-owned land along the foreshore from ‘SP3 Tourist’ to ‘RE1 Public Recreation’.

    The planning proposal is on public exhibition from 18 November to 16 December 2022. To view the proposal or to find our more, visit shape.lakemac.com.au/trinitypoint.

    Information about the proposal can also be viewed at Morisset Library, Council’s Customer Service Centre at Speers Point or can be mailed on request.

    The NSW Department of Planning and Environment are also exhibiting a Concept State Significant Development Application for Trinity Point concurrently with the planning proposal. This application relates specifically to the building design concept for the site and is being exhibited at planningportal.nsw.gov.au/major-projects/projects/trinity-point-mixed-use-development.
