Newcastle Council is currently exhibiting the draft Development Control Plan (DCP) for
‘renewal corridors’ in Adamstown (along Brunker and Glebe Roads), Broadmeadow (9-ways
and railway station), and Hamilton (Tudor Street).
The plans provide detailed development guidelines for continuation of the medium-density residential and commercial development
that is already underway.
Submissions on the DCP are open to the public and close on December 4.
As a resident in or near one of these corridors we are inviting you to a discussion and
workshop to discuss local planning and development issues and identify concerns to be
included in a Newcastle Greens submission or your submission to Council.
Adamstown Uniting Church – Barnes Meeting Room
Saturday November 26 from 1.30 – 3.30 pm
I will be hosting the afternoon and, along with John Mackenzie, our candidate for Newcastle
in next year’s State election, we will be;
- Providing some background on the renewal corridors and the draft DCP in Ward 2
- Giving a brief overview of new plans for the area that include 7,000 new residents at
Broadmeadow ‘Hunter Park’ and the development of the Broadmeadow railway
- Discussing your experiences, concerns and hopes for the renewal corridors and their
impact on the future of your neighbourhood
- Noting specific issues with the draft DCP for inclusion in the Newcastle Greens
submission or your personal submission to Council
