The Department of Planning and Infrastructure has released a Consultation Draft that if implemented will allow the re subdivision of Non Urban Land in North Arm Cove. All the subdivided land from the Pacific Highway to the Village is involved; 2831 landowners including Walker Corporation and Great Lakes Council as landowners. This is not merely rezoning the non urban land to residential.
The proposed amendment amongst the 40 pages of information published states that if 60% of landowners controlling 60% of the land agree by postal ballot to proposed Development Plans re subdivision may be possible. The issue is complex and because of the lack of infrastructure (water and sewerage ) available to North Arm Cove will probably take many years to resolve.
The new amendment will effect all Paper Subdivisions in NSW and Landcom is involved in the re subdivision of land at Blacktown City / Riverstone. Shoalhaven, Wollongong, Eurobodalla, Queenbeyan, Port Stephens, Lake Macqarie City, Great Lakes, Wyong, Maitland and Sutherland all having paper subdivision.
NACRA is presently forming a Sub Committee to consider the implications for the existing Urban village of North Arm Cove and making enquiries with the Director of Planning GLC Lisa Shiff at GLC. There are many implications for our village as we know it. If you have any particular interest, knowledge or skill to offer please contact me Len Yearsley at 0249973262 or make your own submission. All details can be found at wwwplanning.nsw.gov.au/onexhibition under 'draft policies and plans'
