Heddon Greta–Cliftleigh Urban Corridor plan unveiled


Cessnock City Council has unveiled its plans for a range of actions to improve liveability between the strategic centres of Kurri Kurri and Maitland.

And, now, the community is being invited to have its say on the Heddon Greta-Cliftleigh Urban Corridor.

The draft proposal seeks to identify and address current and future infrastructure and servicing needs within the corridor.

It also considers issues such as the road network, constraints, connectivity and open space.

Between 4 April and 6 May, council is calling on residents to provide input to the plan to help refine these actions, as well as identify any additional improvements that could be made within the corridor.

Cessnock City mayor Jay Suvaal said the area had experienced substantial population growth in the past decade.

“I’m glad to see a structure plan being put in place,” he stated.

“With so much housing development, and so many new residents moving to the area, it’s important to put a plan in place that provides a coordinated approach for any future development and infrastructure delivery.

“I strongly encourage people to visit council’s website, view the draft plan, and take part in the consultation.”

Council will host a series of drop-in information sessions throughout April where the community can find out more about the plan and provide input.

They will take place from 2pm to 5pm on Tuesday 12 April at Kurri Kurri Golf Course; 7am to 9am on Thursday 21 April at Cliftleigh Meadows District Park; and 2pm to 5pm on Tuesday 26 April at Kurri Kurri Golf Course.

Residents can also have their say via an online survey and an interactive map on council’s website, or by making a written submission.
