LEP Decision

Title Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore
Summary The purpose of this Planning Proposal is to amend various built form provisions within the Port Stephens Local Environmental Plan 2013 (PSLEP) that apply to land within the Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore (the Town Centre) to create opportunities for increased density and achieve the desired built form outcomes as set out in Progressing the Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore Strategy: A revised implementation and delivery program (the Delivery Program). A copy of the Delivery Program has been included as Appendix 1.
The proposed changes are consistent with the Delivery Program, adopted by Council on 25 September 2018, and are necessary to complete Actions 1, 2 and 7.
The Delivery Program seeks to provide built form controls to create opportunities for the activation of underdeveloped and underutilised sites in the Town Centre whilst maintaining quality public domain spaces and encouraging built forms that complement and enhance the character of the locality.
