A caravan park with 56 long-term sites and 5 short-term caravan sites has been approved at 1 Bowtells Dr, Avoca Beach.
The development will include an office/amenity building and associated demolition works.
The local planning committee approved the proposal on June 22 after postponing the matter to November last year for more information.
The proposal has drawn dozens of objections since it was submitted to the Central Coast Council in 2017.
Approval allows for fewer sites than originally planned.
The 2.79ha site had been a caravan park for over 50 years but is now vacant.
Work had physically begun to upgrade the caravan park in line with the development approved by the former Gosford Town Council in 2011.
Existing improvements to the site include interior tarmac driveways, two housing units, a community building and an amenity building.
The panel’s reasons for the current approval included: legal advice on legality and because issues raised by the panel in November have been resolved.
At the November meeting, the panel asked for more information on the waste management plans and also stipulated a number of setbacks from the limits.
A site has been deleted from the plan.
