Nestled in the heart of Pindimar, on the shores of Port Stephens, is this idyllic 1454m2 non-urban block of land. Offering spectacular views of Port Stephens with camping permitted. Take a moment to capture the amazing sunrises from this block. Here are the main points about the land: • Waterfront • Camp and caravan for up to 60 days of the year • Partially clear the land • Fence the land • Establish gardens and partially landscape the land • No permanent structure to be erected • No time frame on the rezone on the land
In 1918 a NSW Royal Commission on Decentralisation recommended Port Stephens to be a future Naval Base. An area of over 7000 acres was selected on the Northern Shoreline of Port Stephens.
The site was then proposed for the development of Pindimar City as a port for overseas shipping in 1918. Pindimar was also the suggested site of a naval base for the Pacific Fleet by Admiral of the Fleet, Viscount Jellicoe, in 1919. The proposed city was designed by W. Scott Griffiths. Plans for the development included farming lots for returned soldiers, a railway link, industrial and educational zones, a cathedral, golf links and cemeteries. The proposal was later rejected and the city never eventuated. However the plans for over 1000 allotments were surveyed, pegged and registered with the NSW Lands Titles Office as Torrens Title Freehold land with a Local Council Zoning of Non-Urban 1(a) - Agriculture use.
Non-urban zoning does not allow a dwelling to be constructed on the land.
The MidCoast Council have no timetable at all to re-zone this land. Sometime in the future it will be rezoned but nobody has any time frame. You can camp on the land (or caravan) - you can pursue any agricultural pursuit as the zoning is 1(a) non-urban (a) (Agriculture).
