Hunter Economic Zone Environmental Masterplan

HEZ’s combination of ecology and economy heralds a new approach that will set new environmental standards for similar developments across NSW.

  • HEZ embarked on a first for Australia by developing an Ecological Constraints Master Plan (ECMP) for the entire site. It has since won numerous industry awards.

  • The ECMP is a comprehensive audit of plant and animal life and their habitats within the developable area of 900 hectares. This will minimise unnecessary environmental stress, whilst enabling authorities to readily determine and then approve plans for operation of business and industry at HEZ. HEZ aims to protect the environment while allowing for fast-tracking development.

Location and Lifestyle

The Hunter Economic Zone boasts a rapidly growing population approaching 1,000,000 people within the Hunter, Newcastle and Central Coast region.

  • It is located only minutes from the Hunter Valley wine region, the city of Newcastle and the NSW central coast beaches, providing diverse residential living.
  • The region’s average house price is lower than the state average with home ownership higher than the NSW average. Home options include ocean, lake and bay waterfront locations, bush retreats, rural acreages, inner city terraces and city/waterfront apartments.
  • The Hunter region has excellent community facilities, recreation, dining, entertainment and shopping. It is known for its quality educational establishments including respected secondary schools, Institute of TAFE, and the world renowned Newcastle University.

Manufacturing and Trade Skills

Large steel, aluminium, ship building, and coal enterprises, and industry continues to play a major role in the regional economy and workforce.

  • Today the Hunter produces 90 per cent of NSW’s electricity, smelts 35 per cent of Australia’s aluminium, and has an export coal industry worth $85 billion a year, creating a large manufacturing labour pool.

  • With jobs highly valued in the Hunter, you’ll find local workers are skilled, loyal and keen. Your company may up to 20 per cent in manufacturing labour costs by operating at HEZ rather than in a metropolitan location.
