Adoption of the draft Lake Activation Strategy

Council adopted the draft Lake Macquarie Lake Activation Strategy following its public exhibition.

Lake Macquarie Mayor Kay Fraser said “as our city continues to grow, it’s important that we are guided by a strategy that informs investment in the development and management of the lake and its foreshore over the next 10 years. It will place us in a great position to secure access to the lake, strengthen the relationships between the lake and economic centres around the foreshore, diversify our local economy and employment opportunities, as well as allow the city to attract events and increase tourism and visitor opportunities.”
