The area from Charlestown to Belmont offers opportunities for significant growth. The economic centres of Charlestown, Belmont, Mount Hutton and Warners Bay will continue to evolve and intensify, providing a wide range of housing, employment and services.

The local centres and surrounding areas of Whitebridge, Kahibah and Windale will also change, providing more housing, employment, and necessary services to meet the needs of their growing communities.

The health precinct at Gateshead will expand, capitalising on the regionally significant hospital and other allied health services.

The Warners Bay Economic Centre is supported by a business park that provides new opportunities for innovative businesses, and supports large format indoor recreation and entertainment facilities.
