Peat Island

Property NSW  is continuing with plans for the rezoning of Government land at Peat Island and Mooney Mooney.

The Proposal 

Property NSW is seeking approval for the rezoning of the site and proposed land uses.

The revised proposal includes more than 21 hectares of open space for the community, including a 11.3 hectare expansion of the adjacent Popran National Park.

Rezoning this land will ensure a viable and sustainable mix of residential, commercial and tourism developments, delivering an estimated 150 ongoing jobs and sustained economic growth for Mooney Mooney and the region’s community.

Project Objectives 

Key development objectives:

  • activate underutilised and inaccessible government land;
  • create public access along the river foreshore;
  • deliver a sustainable development;
  • create a diversity of residential dwellings complementary to the Mooney Mooney community;
  • deliver local jobs; and
  • recognise and protect Indigenous and European history.

Current Status 

The 2014 draft Planning Proposal has been revised to incorporate feedback from the Department of Planning, Central Coast Council and the local community.

In October 2016, Property NSW lodged the revised Planning Proposal with Council and in March 2017 Council endorsed the proposal. The proposal is now with the Department of Planning for Gateway Determination (includes public exhibition of the Planning Proposal).

With Council support, Property NSW will undertake stakeholder consultation and finalise specialist reports. 

Market sounding and a developer EOI process will be undertaken subject to completion of the rezoning.
