Cessnock City Council is encouraging residents to provide feedback as the Kurri Kurri District Strategy is now on public exhibition.

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said we especially want to hear from those living in Weston and Kurri Kurri.

“The draft strategy sets out opportunities for the future and will guide development as we continue to build a community that is active, accessible and thriving into future,” Cr Pynsent.  

The draft strategy was developed following extensive community consultation, ensuring the plan captured the community’s aspirations for the future.  

Mayor Pynsent said it is vital to plan carefully as Kurri Kurri is strategically located and has been identified in the Hunter Regional Plan as one of the Lower Hunter’s strategic centres.  

“This strategy is critically important, it has considered our needs now and down the track. It will inform local policy for the district until 2036,” Cr Pynsent said.  

The draft strategy includes commercial centre master plans for Kurri Kurri and Weston and a Land use Strategy that sets out an overarching vision for the district.  

Council is also hosting the following community drop- in sessions:

  • 9am - 12pm on 8 July 2017 at Rotary Park in Kurri Kurri
  • 10am - 2pm on 21 July 2017 at Rotary Park in Kurri Kurri
  • 10am - 2pm on 14 July 2017 at Weston Civic Centre.

The 28 day exhibition period commences on 21 June, 2017 and finishes on 2 August, 2017. To make a submission or for more information visit http://www.cessnock.nsw.gov.au/community/exhibition/kurrikurridistrictstrategy.
