The motion before Council sought the approval of additional car park spaces for the business park by converting 756 spaces from Newcastle Airport’s long term parking site, and creating a further 314 adjacent to the development.

This car park development has been approved in anticipation of further development approval in the precinct.

An unspecified “industrial development” and an application for an eight storey commercial building that would be serviced by these further parking spaces are currently lodged with Council and are under consideration.
