$2.8B Tuggerah redevelopment on NSW Central Coast could include seniors’ living

Published on

Seniors’ living has been flagged as a component of property giant Scentre Group’s $2.8 billion redevelopment of Tuggerah Town Centre on the NSW Central Coast, now before a planning panel.

First announced in 2019, the project on more than 70 hectares of land – including seniors’ living, 5000 homes, a Westfield shopping precinct, and a new primary school – has now gone before the Central Coast Local Planning Panel to allow Central Coast Council to prepare a planning proposal, the Central Coast Express Advocate reports.

“The planning proposal will seek to create a new community to support the existing Tuggerah Centre with a range of low, medium, and higher-density housing options to meet future housing demand,” Council said in a report.

Speaking in 2019, former NSW Planning and Housing Minister Anthony Roberts called the proposal a “game-changer” for the Central Coast.

“This proposal has the potential to shape how people live, work, play and move around the area, with 18 hectares of parkland; new dwellings; a transport interchange; new health and education services, and expanded retail and leisure offerings,” he said.

Scentre Group and Central Coast Council have been contacted for comment.
