The company recently submitted their latest concept plans for the Riverside project to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment.

“We have been working closely with MidCoast Council, as well as the State Environmental and Planning Agencies to ensure we strike the right balance between supporting local economic growth, maintaining the area’s natural charm and providing much needed housing supply,” Managing Director Michael Sheargold said.

“You only get one chance in the life of a project to make sure the design and planning is right and that time is now,” he said.

On the drawing board are plans for approximately 800 dwellings and a retail/commercial centre.

The site is bounded by Myall Street to the west and the Myall River to the east.

Completion date is scheduled for 2035.

Mr Sheargold added, “We look forward to working with the local community in delivering this very exciting project”.

More information on the Modified Concept Plan can be found on the Department of Planning and Environments major projects website.

The next meeting of the Hawks Nest/Tea Gardens Progress Association is being held in the old library at the Hawks Nest Community Centre at 7pm on Monday 13 February.

  1. If the population of the town will be (say) doubled, will the access road from Pacific Highway be widened and strengthened or will we be experiencing increased risks to our safety in the event of increased surface wear or, worse, a possible fire?

  2. A meeting of the Progress Association is not the appropriate forum for the community to provide feedback on this development .
    A seperate well advertised public meeting needs to be called to discuss this matter, with no other item on the agenda.
