The City of Gosford is the bustling hub of the Central Coast and the jewel in its crown is the spectacular waterfront. Gosford’s waterfront sits at the southern tip of Gosford beside the city centre, with excellent access to transport, communications, services and the natural amenity of the Central Coast.
The beautiful, central site is recognised for its strategic importance to future urban development and investment. Gosford Waterfront is expected to contribute enormously to job growth and efficient use of public infrastructure.
The Gosford Waterfront will be a vibrant and active mixed-use precinct that capitalises on its natural assets and reconnects the city centre with its foreshore. Rezoning has created residential and commercial opportunities for developers and investors.
The NSW Government favours timely redevelopment of the Gosford Waterfront, as a catalyst project for the revitalisation of the regional city. The Corporation has taken a lead agency role in preparing the site for redevelopment including the rezoning.
The rezoning of the Gosford Waterfront allows for:
The Corporation facilitated an architectural design competition for the Regional Performing Arts Centre and Conservatorium in 2013. The independent panel selected Perumal Pedavoli architect’s winning concept, a preference endorsed by Gosford City Council, for its innovation, energy efficiency, architecture and planning.
The proposed Centre falls within the Cultural Hub, located on Crown Land on the corners of Central Coast Highway, Dane Drive and Vaughan Drive, adjacent to the Gosford Memorial Park. There are no plans to build on War Memorial Park.
This exciting development can play a key role in the generation of cultural tourism and return sustained economic benefits to Gosford and the Central Coast region.
