Draft Nelson Bay Public Domain Plan

Streets that prioritise people, a greener town centre and more spaces for the community to enjoy - that’s the exciting new vision for Nelson Bay.

The Nelson Bay Public Domain Plan will be used to guide future investment in the Bay, including grant funding and future works by Council. The Plan implements a key action of the Progressing the Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore Strategy: A Revised Implementation and Delivery Program (PDF 4.3MB) (adopted by Council in September 2018) and sets out a long term vision for the streets, paths, parks and foreshore around Nelson Bay Town Centre.

The draft Nelson Bay Public Domain Plan, Streetscape Design Guidelines, and Wayfinding Strategy are now on public exhibition for community feedback from Thursday 28 February until 5pm Thursday 28 March 2019.

Resources and previous consultation

A Nelson Bay Public Domain Plan Fact Sheet (PDF 4.4MB) summarises the key features of the draft plans.

Council commenced consultation on this project during the exhibition of the Progressing the Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore Strategy: A Revised Implementation and Delivery Program, and the plans have been informed by stakeholder workshops held with representatives from key community, resident, and business groups. The outcomes of these workshops have been reported in the draft Nelson Bay Public Domain Plan.

Parking in Nelson Bay

We established the Independent Nelson Bay Citizen’s Parking Panel in November 2018. This was a key action of the Progressing the Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore Strategy: A Revised Implementation and Delivery Program.

Panel workshops considered parking, access, traffic and related matters in and around Nelson Bay.  The recommendations of the Independent Panel relating to the public domain, including streets and pathways around Nelson Bay have been considered in the preparation of the draft Nelson Bay Public Domain Plan.
