Huge step for new Shoalhaven suburb


The Moss Vale Road North Urban land release has taken a huge step forward, with the proposal for a new suburb, catering for up to 3400 homes, to be submitted to the NSW Department of Planning before the end of the year.

The as yet un-named suburb is expected to provide a mix of homes, including low, medium and high density housing, shops, offices and retail outlets, as well as sporting fields, parks and green corridors.

Shoalhaven City Councillor John Wells expects the state government to provide a Gateway determination early in 2021, after which he hopes people will start to suggest “innovative and insightful” names for the new suburb which will be about the size of Bomaderry.

“We’re aiming for a high quality project, with a mix of homes options, including affordable and accessible housing options,” Cr Wells said.

Cr Wells said road works would soon commence, with roundabout on Moss Vale Road to service both the proposed northern and southern land release areas.

NSW Government funding has been secured for the design and construction of the roundabout, with completion expected in the second half of 2021.
