Proposal to create a vibrant community-focused lakeside precinct in western Lake Macquarie

A proposal for a small-scale building to facilitate social connections through food and beverage offerings and complementary small business uses, such as recreational equipment hire, has been unveiled by Lake Macquarie City Council for 4 Bath Street and 1B Victory Row, Toronto.

Council’s Manager Property and Business Development David Antcliff said the lakeside precinct off Bath Street will be a diverse and dynamic foreshore celebrated for its versatility and open space.

“We’ve listened to feedback from our community through consultation, and taken into consideration a review of the best use of the site in line with our Sustainability Policy Review,” Mr Antcliff said.

“A new small-scale building is proposed for the space providing opportunities for casual lakeside dining, boutique functions and pop-up community events.

“Taking inspiration from its scenic lakeside location and adjacent 5ha of foreshore, the proposed precinct will feature indoor and outdoor dining opportunities, as well as pedestrian access improvements and new car parking. There is also an opportunity for a complementary small business such as kayak, bike or boat hire.”

Lake Macquarie Mayor Cr Kay Fraser said community consultation is an integral part of the planning process, and has influenced the proposal for this site.

“We are asking our community to reflect on the proposal presented to them and the benefits it could deliver for Toronto and western Lake Macquarie, and to have their say online,” Cr Fraser said.

“Importantly, we have listened to our community and undertaken a robust sustainability review of the project and the Toronto Foreshore Masterplan. I believe this is a really positive outcome and I’m looking forward to hearing what residents think about the proposal.”

The community is encouraged to visit https://shape.lakemac.com.au/future-toronto before Monday 24 August to comment on the proposal.
