The Kempsey Corridor Master Plan was on public exhibition until Friday 5 October 2012.


The Master Plan is a comprehensive strategic document that establishes the guidelines for the future direction of infrastructure provision, service and development along the South Kempsey to Frederickton corridor.

The Master Plan aims to establish an urban design model for the corridor, with particular emphasis on the villages of South Kempsey and Frederickton and the town centre of Kempsey.

Its objectives are to achieve:
