Lake Macquarie council has released documents used in the development of its plans for Toronto foreshore.
An environmental constraints study and draft urban design analysis were made public on Monday.
The environment study was released after a freedom of information request from Toronto Foreshore Protection Group.
The council says the 2017 document, part of an initial feasibility study for the proposed Bath Street development, "no longer accurately reflects the options being considered".
The more recent urban analysis considers the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the foreshore area, its buildings, topography, vegetation and connectivity to surrounding streets.
"The draft urban design analysis, together with feedback received during phase one of our community consultation last year, will inform initial concepts for our Toronto foreshore master plan," principal projects officer Bohdan Laforest said.
"We will be seeking input from the community later this year to help develop concept designs for the foreshore, and how it will relate to the adjoining proposed mix-use development."
The council hopes the documents will "shed more light" on its vision for the area.
Toronto Foreshore Protection Group will meet this week to consider the studies.
