THE NSW government this week announced it has approved the $276 million Warner Industrial Park on the Central Coast which it says will support the delivery of nearly 3,200 local jobs.
Warner Industrial Park, to be developed by Terrace Tower Group Pty Ltd, is part of the Wyong Employment Zone, which was approved nearly two years ago by Premier Kristina Keneally in her capacity as Minister for Planning.
Under the approved plan, the 104-hectare site will be divided into 90 new industrial lots and used for industries such as warehousing, distribution centres, manufacturing and transport depots.
The government said that Terrace Tower Group is hoping to commence the approved subdivision, landscaping and infrastructure works as soon as possible, with further site-specific development applications required for each future industrial facility on the site.
It is expected that the Central Coast will have an extra 100,000 residents in 2031 – including an extra 70,000 people in Wyong alone – and will require 45,000 jobs by this time.
As part of the approval, Terrace Tower Group will contribute over $3.8 million to Wyong Council for infrastructure projects.
Minister for Planning, Tony Kelly, said a number of conditions have been put in place to address potential impacts of the development.
