Trinity Point is a $388M mixed use and marina being developed by Johnson Property Group at Morisset Park in the Lake Macquarie Local Government Area.
The approved Concept Plan includes a 188 berth marina, restaurant, café and outdoor dining, function centre, 65 room hotel and up to 250 tourist and residential accommodation units, and a range of recreational and commercial facilities. The development has been in planning and consultation over the last ten years, with development consents received for the first 94 marina berths, 65 room hotel, restaurant, café and outdoor dining, function centre, as well as 93 tourist apartments and 34 residential units during 2015 and 2016. The marina is currently under construction.
Council has for many years sought to achieve a high standard of tourism for Lake Macquarie. With the announcement that Accor Hotels will be the operator of the hotel, under its Pullman Brand, Trinity Point in our opinion will be the pinnacle tourism destination for Lake Macquarie. To be successful the facility needs to be a destination in its own right and have enhanced connectivity in the wider region. To do this we not only need to offer the 5 – star services our competition offers, we need to exceed those.
Together with the overall mix of land uses approved for Trinity Point, this opportunity can be enhanced by introducing a limited use helipad as a component of the destination development. The helipad and helicopters using it will operate to strict limits on the type of helicopters that can land, the number of movements per day and week and detailed operational environmental and safety requirements.
The NSW Department of Planning and Environment is seeking community feedback on the modification sought to amend the Part 3A Concept Plan by proposing to introduce a helipad at Trinity Point. Hardcopies of the Environmental Assessment documentation can be viewed at a number of locations, including Morisset Library, Lake Macquarie City Council, Wyong Shire Council and Department of Planning Offices in Newcastle and Sydney.
