Priority Projects

Our Priority Projects are the result of extensive community consultation which helps form the Newcastle 2030 Community Strategic Plan.

The four key Priority Projects underway which will benefit residents, businesses and visitors to Newcastle are below.  But it's only just the beginning.

To stay up to date with these Priority Projects join our Newcastle Have Your Say Facebook group and/or subscribe to the city e-news.

City Centre Revitalisation

We're working with the NSW Government and the private sector to deliver initiatives to revitalise Hunter Street and the city centre.

Coastal Revitalisation

Developing Bathers Way and improving coastal access and facilities for everyone.

Blackbutt Reserve

Projects to upgrade the reserve include the construction of playgrounds and toilet block, kiosk, education centre and BBQ shelters.


A key part of Council's vision for Newcastle is to be a smart, liveable and sustainable City. We will be a leading lifestyle city with vibrant public places, connected transport networks and a distinctive built environment.
