A new masterplan and strategic planning statement for Woy Woy town centre will not be finalised until 2020.
Councillors were told at last week’s council meeting that council staff would review the existing town centre masterplan “as part of the development of a future Comprehensive Local Environmental Plan”.
The outcome of the review would be to develop “a masterplan and Local Strategic Planning Statement in consultation with the community by 2020”.
The announcement by the council’s environment and planning directorate was in response to a question asked by local ward representative Cr Richard Mehrtens about the future of Woy Woy town centre.
“What is the plan for the future of Woy Woy Town Centre including consideration of rejuvenation and making better use of the open and green space in the precinct,” Cr Mehrtens asked.
He was told: “Future planning for the Woy Woy Town Centre will recognise not only the existing character of the area but plan for future population growth.”
