Draft Commercial Centres Strategy Review

The Draft Commercial Centres Strategy – Review of Merimbula / Pambula / Tura Beach Catchment is on exhibition between 23 October and 22 November 2017.

This notice is to inform local residents and interested persons about the public exhibition of the Draft Commercial Centres Strategy – Review of Merimbula/ Pambula/ Tura Beach Catchment.

Following recent advice from the NSW Department of Planning, the requirements for the review included:

  • A discussion of Tura Beach centre in the context of the South East and Tablelands Regional Plan 2036;
  • Determine the current and preferred future role and function of the Tura Beach centre, identifying how the local and sub-regional activities at Tura Beach fit strategically with projected growth in other centres in the Bega Valley;
  • Principles for considering any future commercial proposals of a sub-regional nature for local centre or out-of-centre locations;
  • Suitability of land identified for B5 Business Development zoning to accommodate bulky goods warehouse type development; and
  • Design considerations for the site, particularly in relation to adjoining land uses and the role of the site as a gateway to the Tura Beach residential area.

The Draft Commercial Centres Strategy Review and supporting documentation can be viewed at Council’s Bega office at Zingel Place, Bega between 9:00am and 4:30pm Monday to Friday, or at the Tura Marrang Library and Community Centre at Tura Beach Drive, Tura Beach, the Eden Library located at the corner of Imlay and Mitchell Streets or the Bermagui Library located in Bunga Street during their normal opening hours, or on Council’s website at
