As Australia’s seventh largest city and global gateway for northern NSW, Greater Newcastle faces a new future with investment in aviation, transport, education, health and tourism.

This first-ever Metropolitan Plan for Greater Newcastle, and first for a non-capital city in Australia, aims to capitalise on this investment through a collaborative approach.

The Plan sets out strategies and actions that will drive sustainable growth across Cessnock City, Lake Macquarie City, Maitland City, Newcastle City and Port Stephens communities, which together make up Greater Newcastle.

The Plan also helps to achieve the vision set in the Hunter Regional Plan 2036 – for the Hunter to be the leading regional economy in Australia with a vibrant new metropolitan city at its heart.
