The Department of Planning and Environment has been working closely with the City of Canada Bay Council to investigate opportunities to revitalise Rhodes East. This will include ways to maintain and create new jobs in the area, and provide new homes, shops, cafes and foreshore access.
The Rhodes East area was nominated as a potential Priority Precinct by the City of Canada Bay Council. The Rhodes East Priority Precinct investigation area includes land on the eastern side of the Northern Rail Line in the Rhodes peninsula within walking distance of Rhodes Train Station.
In March and April 2016, more than 200 community members took part in workshops and a survey on the future revitalisation of the area. Overall, participants expressed a desire for more housing choice while preserving the area’s local character.
During the consultations we heard that traffic, public transport, the height and density of buildings, and the provision of a new school are key concerns for the community. We have been working closely with Council to investigate these issues in detail to inform the preparation of a draft precinct plan. In particular, we have been undertaking detailed traffic and transport assessments.
A summary of consultation activities can be seen below.
We want to continue the conversation with the community and there will be ongoing opportunities to get involved throughout the project. The draft precinct plan will be released later this year for further community feedback. We will let you know when the plan is released.
