Hawks Nest rezoning proposal and planning agreement

Submissions closing on 05 February 2021, 04:30 PM


We want to hear from you about a proposal to expand the area for medium density residential development. 

The site that is the subject of the planning proposal is located on Sanderling Avenue at Hawks Nest, to the immediate east of the car park and clubhouse of the Golf Club which is already zoned for medium density residential development.

A voluntary planning agreement is also on exhibition which has been developed in association with the rezoning.

The agreement will support the recovery and long-term management of the Hawks Nest/Tea Gardens koala population through targeted survey work.

It will also help establish the ‘John Davis Memorial Walk’ along Sanderling Avenue, provide assistance to the Tea Gardens Hawks Nest Surf Life Saving Club and assist with improvements to the ‘Michael Rowe Walk’ that forms the Hawks Nest section of the 'Tops to Myall Heritage Walking Trail'.

Obtaining feedback from the community is an important step before the proposal is further considered by Councillors and the State Government. 

The rezoning proposal will be on public exhibition from 16 November to 5 February 2021.
