MCC's Local Strategic Planning Statement
InformationDejanFriday, 18 September 2020 - 10:32pm
Draft LSPS for MCC has been advertised for comments during July and August. Of 21 submissions received five were related to North Arm Cove.
LSPS will be put for adoption to Council on the meeting next Wednesday (23rd Sept).
These are the issues related to NAC
Issue 1: North Arm Cove needs to be considered in the LSPS in terms of: (Submission 1, 2, 10, 15, 17)
- finding a solution to enable landowners to develop their land. Sustainable options should be investigated.
- being included in action 3.3, to develop a master-plan for the area and provide a major release for the southern area of the MidCoast area.
- undertaking meaningful engagement with the community.
- recognising the importance of Walter Burley Griffin’s subdivision by State heritage listing.
Council staff comments:
- it is agreed that a solution is needed for this area, along with other paper subdivisions in the MidCoast. The Rural Strategy, which is an action of the LSPS, will provide direction for this. The solution needs to be implemented in partnership with landowners and meaningful consultation will be part of the Rural Strategy consultation.
- the future residential areas of Brimbin and North Tuncurry, have been identified by the NSW Government over a long period of time and both require master-planning prior to the development of these residential precincts. North Arm Cove will be looked at by the Rural Strategy, and recognise the significant environmental constraints of the area.
- consultation with landowners will be undertaken through the Rural Strategy. We have to ensure our consultation approach is appropriate given the Covid-19 restrictions, but our aim is to provide the opportunity for both the landowners and residents to be involved.
- State heritage listing can be undertaken either by the community or Council. If anyone would like to pursue a listing, they can contact Heritage NSW to investigate the option. It should be noted that State heritage listing requires a high level of heritage assessment for any future development.
