Draft plan envisages revitalisation of Woy Woy
The draft Local Strategic Planning Statement envisages a revitalisation of the Woy Woy commercial centre with an emphasis on housing, jobs, services, community facilities and entertainment for residents and visitors.
It promotes "housing growth for a socially-diverse population" in areas close to public transport.
In Umina, a civic area and town centre would be created, with a "safe public realm" and "an enhanced functionality for a wide cross section of the community".
The plan claims to recognise traffic issues in urban areas while aiming to protect the scenic quality and "unique environmental character" of the area.
Environmental sustainability measures promoted include rainwater recycling, energy efficiency and encouraging cycling as transport.
The plan claims an objective of fostering a sense of community ownership and voice in regard to the usage of public spaces, involving the public in renewal processes and the business community.
The plan also aims to create opportunity for innovative development and design.
