Hawks Nest Lifestyle Village Project - Planning Commenced

Project Name:

Hawks Nest Lifestyle Village Project


Hawks Nest

Land Use:

Rural Land

Scale of Project/Size of Land:

Estimated at 200+ lots

In late 2019, Sankofa expanded its strategic development directions towards the creation of lifestyle villages, responding to an increasing trend amongst Australians seeking independent and community-oriented retirement options. We seized an opportunity in the picturesque Port Stephens region, renowned for its splendid natural landscapes and enriching the quality of life.

Our Hawks Nest project is an embodiment of this vision, subject to receiving the council's approval, a premium clubhouse and an array of diverse facilities will be constructed to serve the future village residents. The village's prime location offers easy access to both the local golf course and beach, fostering an active and vibrant retirement lifestyle for the residents.

Initially, we anticipated lodging our development application in 2020 to comply with the evolving environmental reporting standards. The lodgement was duly made within the year, marking a significant milestone for the project.

Moving forward, we have been engaged in productive collaboration with the Mid Coast

Council. Our key focus points revolve around:

  1. Alleviating the local housing deficit by providing affordable yet superior quality housing options.

  2. Protecting and enhancing the local koala population through an ingeniously designed Eco Corridor. This strategy aims to curb the activities of feral animals, such as foxes, wild cats, and dingoes that pose a significant risk to the koala population.

  3. Ensuring a maintained, single large land parcel ownership post-development, thus providing the flexibility for future strategic planning review.

In all these endeavours, Sankofa continues to uphold its commitment to balancing environmental concerns with community growth and development, envisioning a sustainable and vibrant future for the Hawks Nest Lifestyle Village.
