HDC is recognised by key agencies and businesses for it's planning and development expertise.
The organisation works in collaboration with many partners to plan and deliver significant projects that will improve how people live, work and play within the Hunter region.
HDC is working with a range of partners and landowners to plan for the Broadmeadow recreation precinct to be redeveloped into a premier sport and recreation destination, and has played a significant role in planning for the future use of 20 hectares of former railway land at Glendale.
In the past, partnerships with the private sector and other Government agencies has resulted in construction of the spectacular Anzac Memorial Walk, where HDC's project management expertise was utilised to build a lasting legacy to the Hunter's war-time heros.
The Anzac Memorial Walk is a stunning tribute to the Hunter's war heroes. It comprises a 450-metre cliff top walk stretching along spectacular coastline from Strezlecki Lookout to Bar Beach. The project was a combined effort of the private sector, state and local governments, with HDC providing project management services to the Memorial Walk Trust.
The walk is a memorial to both the Gallipoli landing in 1915 and the commencement of steelmaking in Newcastle the same year. The walk features 3,859 family names of almost 11,000 known Hunter Valley men and women who served during the Great War.
BHP Billiton contributed $3 million to the project and Newcastle City Council $1.5 million.
