Plans to make Glendale a major regional centre

Lake Macquarie City Council is seeking feedback on the draft Glendale Regional Centre Area Plan.
Council’s Manager Integrated Planning, Sharon Pope, said the draft Area Plan provides development controls to guide further expansion of what is an important emerging regional centre, including more employment, retail, entertainment and sporting opportunities.
“The draft Area Plan proposes new road, pedestrian and bicycle links through the centre, the establishment of an environmental corridor around Winding Creek and additional public open space,” Ms Pope said.
“The draft Area Plan also supports construction of the Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange, providing a railway station, new bus station and park-and-ride facility, making it an important transit interchange to meet the future transport needs of the Lower Hunter region.”
“Public exhibition is an essential step in the preparation of the document, allowing the community to comment on the Area Plan’s content.”
The community is invited to submit feedback until 21 April. For more information visit
