Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030

We are working with the Sydney Olympic Park Authority to review the Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030 and to make amendments to the State Environmental Planning Policy (State Significant Precincts) 2005.

We recently consulted on the Sydney Olympic Park Master 2030 (2016 Review). Community input plays an important part in any plans for the future of Sydney Olympic Park and we would like to thank everyone who attended the various community drop-in sessions, joined a walking tour and put in a submission. We are in the process of reviewing submissions and will keep you updated. 

Creating a vibrant town

Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030 is the existing master plan for Sydney Olympic Park. The plan seeks to protect the Park’s role as a premier destination for cultural, entertainment, recreation and sporting events while protecting and enhancing the public domain and parklands.

The Master Plan: 

  • Protects Sydney Olympic Park’s role as Sydney’s premier destination for cultural, entertainment, recreation and sporting events;
  • Ensures the Park continues to evolve into an active, vibrant town within metropolitan Sydney;
  • Protects and enhances the public domain and the parklands;
  • Outlines infrastructure requirements;
  • Provides detailed planning/design principles for future development; and
  • Contributes to the Park’s quality of built environment, future character and cultural significance.

 

Whilst the draft Master Plan has been released for consultation, the Minister for Planning has made it clear that the Master Plan and proposed amendments to the SEPP will not be finalised until such time as traffic, transport and infrastructure matters are satisfactory resolved.  The Department will continue to work with Sydney Olympic Park Authority and other key agencies such as Roads and Maritime Services, Transport for NSW and Department of Education during and after the public exhibition period to ensure satisfactory arrangements are in place.

 

Five-Year Review

 

Both the State Environmental Planning Policy (State Significant Precincts) 2005 and the Master Plan 2030 require Sydney Olympic Park Authority to review the Master Plan every five years.

 

The review was informed by:

  • A Plan for Growing Sydney which identifies the Olympic Peninsula as a major new development area within the Greater Parramatta Priority Growth Area
  • A desire to broaden the types of activity within Sydney Olympic Park, and respond to market interest for residential development in the precinct
  • New priority precincts at Wentworth Point and Carter Street
  • Improved access from Hill Road off ramp and the proposed Light Rail service from Parramatta to Strathfield
  • Consultation with local councils, State agencies, key stakeholders and the local community.

Update (March 2017)

In November 2015, the NSW Government committed funding for a new westbound off-ramp from the M4 Motorway at Hill Road. The new westbound off-ramp requires road widening outside of the existing road corridor within both Sydney Olympic Park and the Carter Street Precinct.  

 

We are working together with Roads and Maritime Services, Sydney Olympic Park Authority and the City of Parramatta to amend the current Carter Street Precinct Plan and Development Control Plan as well as the Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030. The revised plans will accommodate the new off ramp whilst still ensuring a mix of housing, employment and retail services within the Carter Street Precinct.
