The Northern Gateway Transport Hub

The 74-hectare Northern Gateway Transport Hub is located north of the existing developed areas of Cundletown. It is located between the Taree Regional Airport and the northern Taree access to the Pacific Highway, which is the main regional transport corridor linking Sydney and Brisbane.

The Northern Gateway is intended for transport employment generating industries given its proximity to the Pacific Highway. Over time, this hub could be connected to other transport forms including air and rail. Expected uses include freight transport facilities, truck depots, transport depots, warehouses and distribution centres. The direct effect of the project is to increase the amount of freight and freight related businesses located in Taree.

The Northern Gateway is being developed in two stages. Stage 1 of the project was rezoned in 2016.

Stage 2 consultation

We are now seeking feedback on the proposed planning controls for Stage 2.

The Northern Gateway Planning Proposal outlines the proposed zone changes (as indicated on the map) to enable the development of the transport hub. A local plan has also been prepared for inclusion in the Greater Taree Development Control Plan 2010 to introduce development controls for the site including landscaping, traffic, flooding and environmental measures.

We are seeking feedback on both the planning proposal and the Development Control Plan provisions (included in Attachment 8 of the planning proposal). Feedback can be made up until Tuesday, 29 September 2020.

We are holding an information session on Thursday, 3 September where you can ask questions of our town planners and traffic engineer. Due to Covid-19 these sessions will be by appointment only. Contact us on 7955 7777 to make an appointment.

We welcome your feedback during the exhibition period.

Please ensure you provide feedback by 4.30pm on Tuesday 29 September 2020.
