They are typically large sites owned by the state government that are of state or regional importance for:

  • achieving government policy objectives, particularly those relating to increasing delivery of housing and jobs
  • environmental or natural resource conservation
  • heritage or historical significance.

The urban renewal process for State Significant Precincts involves comprehensive assessment to determine the development potential of these areas, carefully considering environmental and social factors, and identifying the infrastructure needs of the future population.


Plans are typically prepared by the relevant government agency and assessed by the Department of Planning and Environment working closely with the community and local council.


These plans respond to NSW government strategies for providing well designed buildings and public spaces, healthy environments with open space networks, trees, and links to public transport and road networks as well as jobs and housing. Consultation with the community and government agencies is a critical part of the State Significant Precinct process.
