New University For Warnervale

Wyong Council will ask the NSW Government to fast-track approval for new education precinct near Warnervale which could create up to 6000 jobs.

Councillors made the decision after viewing a new concept masterplan for the education precinct on the former Country Music Association site including an economic viability assessment and preliminary layout plan.

The concept masterplan outlines an overall vision for an integrated and interactive tertiary education, business and technology park, community and recreational space and a smart hub.

The four main areas proposed for the site includes:

  • A university with integrated student accommodation for 1500 units;
  • A sports and recreational precinct with sports fields and pool/gym complex;
  • A central core including smart hub with the library, administration functions and a hotel for short term accommodation.
  • A Business Park to integrate academia, research and commerce.

The whole site would be cleverly linked by pedestrian and cycle pathways, attractive landscaping and plenty of open green space.new university and business precinct at Warnervale

Mayor Doug Eaton said the concept was truly exciting for the Central Coast community.

“This report confirms there is high demand with a shortfall of 7,600 university places in the greater Central Coast and Hunter Valley region,” Cr Eaton said.

“Economically, it showed the project would contribute $650m when fully developed and over 5,000 jobs during construction, with ongoing economic benefit of over $9m per annum and more than 1,300 full time jobs.”

Council will now prepare a Planning Proposal for submission to the NSW Government’s faster ‘Gateway’ approval process and will seek Expressions of Interest (EOI) from potential partners for the project.

The council has already had discussions with the Federal Education Department and say they will continue to partner with both the State and Federal governments on this project.

Dobell Federal Liberal MP Karen McNamara said she was determined to see greater access to higher education on the Central Coast.

“We committed to working with Wyong Shire Council in our ‘Growth Plan for the Central Coast’ prior to the election and I am pleased to see the ongoing development of this project,” Mrs McNamara said.
