PORT Stephens Council is calling on the community to comment on a discussion paper to improve the existing Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore Strategy.

Since its adoption in 2012, the Nelson Bay Strategy has sought to guide the town towards becoming more attractive to tourists, the business community and residents.

Group Manager of Development Services, Mike McIntosh, said that despite significant growth in the housing and construction industries in the last four years, there has been limited private investment in the town centre.

“Council is committed to understanding why limited development has occurred, formulating ideas to improve the existing strategy, and ultimately enhancing the town centre.

“We also want the community to ensure their needs are addressed in future planning,” Mr McIntosh said.

With the aim to gather feedback for future amendments, the Discussion Paper – Progress of the Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore Strategy identifies six key themes and 21 ideas for a better strategy.
