HCCDC Starts Construction On Next Two Hectares of Public Domain

Another quality public space on the waterfront will soon be a reality in the ever-evolving Honeysuckle Precinct, with the Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation (HCCDC) today commencing construction on the next two hectares of public domain.

The new Honeysuckle Park forms part of HCCDC’s $55-million spend on infrastructure and public domain works in the precinct.

Member of the Legislative Council, Taylor Martin said HCCDC continues to have a core role in transforming underutilised lands into important destinations that attract people, activities, recreation and jobs.

“A great place is a destination that connects with people on different levels. Our aim is to create places that are accessible, comfortable, sociable and engaging,” Mr Martin said.

“Public space belongs to everyone and so we look forward to transforming Honeysuckle Park into a free, open and welcoming destination for people of all ages, genders, backgrounds and abilities to use and enjoy”

HCCDC Acting Chief Executive Valentina Misevska said Honeysuckle Park is the first of two hectares of new public domain that HCCDC will deliver across the precinct over coming years.

The 4750m2 site at Worth Place will deliver open green space for the community to enjoy, with specially created elements reflecting what the community said it wanted to see.

“In 2018, we engaged with the community as part of creating the Honeysuckle Public Domain Concept, with the aim of understanding what features and outcomes people most wanted to see.

“Themes from this engagement have been captured into the design of Honeysuckle Park, such as the sandstone blocks that step down into the water, the shade structures and open lawn areas for picnics,” said Ms Misevska.

The new public domain will also feature native trees and plants and a wide promenade that will eventually connect all of Honeysuckle through to the Bathers Way.

“Honeysuckle Park will also celebrate the area’s rich maritime history through the design of a nautical themed playground and shade sails.

”Construction is now underway and is expected to be complete by mid-2021. Following a competitive tender process, Glascott Civil has been appointed as the contractor to complete the works on behalf of HCCDC.
