What approvals are required?
Stage 2 of the Trinity Point Marina is currently being planned. It will be assessed by Lake Macquarie Council and determined by the Hunter and Central Coast Regional Planning Panel.
As the Stage 2 Marina proposes more than 80 berths, planning legislation requires that the project is a Designated Development (Clause 23 of Schedule 3 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Regulation 2000), which means that the Regional Planning Panel is the determining authority.
