Who we are

Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation (HCCDC) is responsible for the planning and delivery of economic and urban development in the Hunter and Central Coast regions of NSW.

Our vision for these regions is to see unrivalled lifestyle in rich natural and built environments.

Thriving communities

We’re working to create vibrant places with great spaces, more employment opportunities and better housing options, while attracting innovative talent and enterprises.

We manage the NSW Government’s significant investment in the development of these areas, unlock complex challenges, and work in collaboration with government agencies, councils and key stakeholders to understand how we can best deliver outcomes that benefit and enhance the communities.

In Newcastle, we have led the Revitalising Newcastle program and the Honeysuckle Urban Renewal Project, as well as significant remediation and rehabilitation projects on former BHP Steelworks sites.

On the Central Coast, our work includes revitalisation initiatives in Gosford, such as the transformation of Leagues Club Park, to help create a dynamic urban centre with places that people enjoy staying and playing in. It also includes the management of Mount Penang Parklands as a widely acclaimed destination for tourism, business and education.

Together, we create thriving environments, communities and economies.


HCCDC's objectives are to:

  • deliver strategic outcomes to grow economic capacity and enhance communities
  • drive industry diversification to grow more jobs to attract and retain talent to the regions
  • create engaging, sustainable and attractive public spaces, connected to better transport options
  • unlock opportunities and realise the full potential of government land and assets
  • respect existing character, culture and heritage
  • work in collaboration and partnership with community and stakeholders.

HCCDC sits within the NSW Department of Planning and Environment's (DPE) Homes, Property and Development group.

We are the coming together of the Hunter Development Corporation (HDC) and the Central Coast Regional Development Corporation (CCRDC), with a proud legacy and decades of work undertaken in both regions, making a significant impact on the communities in which we operate.
