What happened at Wyee West Paper Subdivision Development Plan Reference Group meeting five

At this month’s meeting on 12 April, the group discussed the recent community meeting hosted by Member for Lake Macquarie, Greg Piper and Hunter Water on the Wyee sewer scheme, and potential implications for the paper subdivision. You can find out more about the Wyee Sewer Scheme at Hunter Water’s website.

Council officers gave an update on other matters relevant to the paper subdivision, including upcoming meetings with CSIRO to discuss sustainable energy technologies for residential estates. The group was also advised that geotechnical and archaeological consultants will soon be appointed to undertake studies for the area. This work is a precursor to engineering design, which will allow us to accurately estimate construction costs.

In the coming months, we will be exploring in more detail how these infrastructure costs can be paid for by landowners in a way that is both equitable and affordable.

Our compliance staff are actively monitoring the area for new unauthorised development. Council reiterated its position that restricting further development until essential services are in place is necessary to limit the number of residents living in potentially unsafe conditions, and to help achieve long-term development goals for the area.
