The land on the north-western side of John Oxley Drive, between Wrights Road and Phillip Charley Drive, Port Macquarie, is subject to some future land use changes:
The changes provide an opportunity to review the range of constraints that affect the land use development opportunities in this precinct, and to propose options and a preferred strategy for the future.
Following community consultation over a draft Structure Plan, on 25 July 2012 Council adopted the John Oxley Drive Precinct Structure Plan. By letter dated 1 November 2012 the Department of Planning and Infrastructure advised that the Structure Plan has been approved as a component of Council's Urban Growth Management Strategy.
The Structure Plan does not immediately change the planning controls applicable to the land - refer to section 6.3 for a summary of the various implementation issues. The property in the north-east corner is not subject to the same issues as most of the other properties, and Council has commenced the process of changing the planning controls.
