Newcastle expands...

At the Council meeting tonight, Newcastle Council resolved to pursue a "boundary adjustment" whereby Newcastle gives 87 hectares of land to Lake Macquarie and receives approximately 300 hectares.

Council resolve to:
a. Proceed with the proposed local government boundary adjustment as outlined in Attachment A.
b. Prepare a joint submission with Lake Macquarie City Council for consideration by the Department of Local Government.

Not a bad deal!

The new boundary will follow natural catchment boundaries of Hexham Swamp and follows the F3 freeway, the Newcastle Link Road and a proposed RTA road from the Link Road to Glendale Drive.

Now let's talk about the natural catchment boundaries of Throsby Creek (and Kotara South, parts of Highfields and Charlestown)!
