MID COAST COUNCIL - WORIMI LAND

DEVELOPMENT PROFILE
Mungo Developments Pty Lty submitted DA2022/0834 to Council in early August 2022, with development plans to establish a 437 lot caravan park on the beach side at 288 Mungo Road, comprising of 342 short term lots and 95 reserved for occupation under the Holiday Park (Long Term Casual Occupation) Act. With plans to be marketed as a “bushland retreat”, the concept for the 15.03 hectare lot holds a large focus on short term tourist accommodation and does not seek approval for long term sites and via association permanent residents.

The location previously has received approval for a caravan park however the grant has since lapsed.

WHERE IS IT UP TO?
Currently in the Exhibition period. The Council is welcoming public submissions until 10th of October 2022.


WHAT’S AT STAKE?

  • Approximate area to be cleared: 8.69 hectares
  • Bushfire prone land: the development area is situated in bushfire prone land making it an irresponsible area for development of medium density accommodation, especially with regard to the limited access in and out.
  • Ecology: 7.56 ha of native vegetation will be directly affected and a further 1.37 ha will be indirectly affected (secondary stormwater detention area).

HABITAT FOR:

  • Koala
  • Squirrel Glider
