  • Submission on Central Coast Draft Tuggerah to Wyong Economic Corridor Strategy

    Hunter | LSPSs | Local Government | Regional | Submissions

    UDIA is encouraged that Council has undertaken the work to draft a Tuggerah to Wyong Economic Corridor Strategy. However, while in general we don’t disagree with the Directions and Actions included in the draft Strategy, we believe it does not go far enough to articulate and support the outstanding economic potential of this Corridor which would benefit the region as a whole.

  • Submission on Maitland Draft LSPS

    Hunter | LSPSs | Local Government | Regional | Submissions

    UDIA recommends a clearer monitoring and review schedule; an update once the Local Housing Strategy is finalised; annual reports of the MUSS; more expansive consideration of the existing rail line; utilisation of the Aboriginal Land SEPP; implementation of 'Better Placed' as a principle and design framework; engagement with industry in the preparation of upcoming strategies including Economic Development, Environmental, Centres, and Industrial and Employment Lands strategies; and collaboration with industry to address current infrastructure needs.

  • Submission on the draft Shellharbour Local Strategic Planning Statement

    LSPSs | Local Government | Regional | Submissions

    UDIA is generally supportive of the vision and priorities in the LSPS. We commend Council for preparing a Local Housing Strategy prior to the LSPS so that the LSPS is clearly guided by housing needs and priorities. Unfortunately, many of the concerns UDIA raised in our submission on the Local Housing Strategy were not addressed in the final version of that Strategy. Therefore, the same concerns have been translated into the LSPS.

Create an independent economic development body to facilitate new investment to Port Stephens. 6. Seek bio-certification for strategic centres and catalyst areas. 7.

Maintain a merit-based approach to planning proposals with clear criteria for additional sites to be rezoned. 9. Provide flexibility in planning controls to encourage greater housing diversity. 10. Proceed cautiously and collaborate closely with industry in the development of any local biodiversity strategy, including koala management, and take a regional approach to biodiversity conservation. 11.
