Mt Penang Parklands
HCCDC owns and manages the Mt Penang Parklands precinct - a Central Coast destination for tourism, events, business and education.
The vision for the 152-hectare Mt Penang site features ecologically sustainable development that complements the existing heritage character and landscape setting. A vibrant mix of uses attract employment, recreation, education, business, specialty retail, accommodation, festivals and events.
The Mt Penang masterplan comprises distinct precincts for sports, bushland, heritage, Baxters Track and Philip House - and features the Festivals and Gardens Precinct, Kangoo Road Commercial Precinct and the Highway Commercial Precinct.
Building infrastructure for the future
Infrastructure works are now underway in Mount Penang, providing much-needed upgrades to the site’s business, education and tourism facilities.
The works include enhancements to existing water and sewer amenity, as well as improvements to roads and parking.
Works will take place in a staged approach, continuing until 2022. Stage 1 is currently underway in the Highway Commercial Precinct and will continue until August 2019.
Visitors to Mount Penang, as well as business and education tenants, may encounter an increase in trade vehicles and minor traffic disruptions during this first stage, particularly around the Central Coast Highway turnoff.
If you encounter any issues during this time, or if you have any questions, please contact Thomas O’Dea from Bolte Civil (0468 925 167) or project manager Luke Griffiths (0402 686 306).

Highway Commercial Precinct
The 5.7-hectare Highway Precinct is located immediately adjacent to the Central Coast Highway and is identified for commercial redevelopment. Permitted uses of the land include commercial/office space, large-format retail outlets, specialty retail, educational institutions and related ancillary uses.
Ecologically sustainable development at Mt Penang will activate the site and provide diverse opportunities for employment and business on the Central Coast.
By attracting niche and complementary business developments, the site also has the potential to support the redevelopment of Gosford’s CBD.
The Kangoo Road Commercial Precinct
The Kangoo Road Commercial Precinct is bound by Kangoo Road in the east and the Events and Gardens Precinct in the west.
At the end of financial year 2017-18, the site was under contract for sale for its redevelopment as a commercial precinct, in accordance with the existing planning controls. A master plan for the precinct is also in development.
