DOZENS of locals attended the Land and Environment Court conciliation conference at the site of the proposed Trinity Point helipad on Tuesday morning.

The conference was convened by the court in an attempt to find areas of “agreement and resolution” between the developer, Johnson Property Group (JPG), and Lake Macquarie City Council, over the helipad proposal.

JPG wants to add a helipad to its approved $388-million development at Morisset Park.

Senior Commissioner Susan Dixon was scheduled to hear from six community members chosen to speak about the proposal at the conference.

The legal teams representing JPG and the council were then to retire for a confidential session with the Commissioner.

If an agreement is not reached by the parties, the matter will proceed to a contested hearing in the court.
