Council votes to allow 8 and 12 storey buldings in Nelson Bay CBD

Press Release

Amendments to the LEP and DCP adopted by Port Stephens Council at its meeting on 13 October will clear the way for 8 and 12 story buildings in parts of the Nelson Bay CBD. Two of our three East Ward councillors, John Nell and Jaimie Abbott voted against this change as did West Ward councillor Giacomo Arnott.  These councillors accepted that the vast majority of the Tomaree community rejected the push for high rise in the Bay.
