Infrastructure NSW has submitted a Concept Proposal for the new Sydney Fish Market and Stage 1 demolition works at the site.


The Concept Proposal for the new Sydney Fish Market and Stage 1 works include:

  • the use of the site for a new Sydney Fish Market including waterfront commercial, tourist facilities and ancillary uses
  • a building envelope with three above ground levels, a basement parking level with an overall building height of RL 28.00 AHD and a gross floor area of up to 30,000 square metres.
  • waterfront structures such as wharves
  • improvements to the public domain including promenades, access to Blackwattle Bay and landscaping
  • pedestrian, cycle and road access and circulation principles
  • upgrade works to Bridge Road and its intersections with Wattle Street and Wentworth Park Road
  • Stage 1 works involving the demolition of land and water-based structures including removal of marine piles and any resulting repairs to the existing seawall.


Consultation and feedback

The Sydney Fish Market Concept Proposal and Stage 1 application was on public exhibition and open for feedback until 13 November 2019.


The Department welcomed feedback from the community, government agencies and other stakeholders during public exhibition. This feedback helps us better understand the opinions and concerns of the community, which informs our assessment of the project.


The scoping report, SEARs, EIS and other project documents received by the Department to date are available on our Major Projects website.


Next steps

Following the exhibition, the Department will publish all submissions received during the exhibition and ask Infrastructure NSW to address any issues raised by the community, council and government agencies.


Infrastructure NSW will prepare a formal Response to Submissions (RTS) report, which we will make publicly available.


The Department will then assess the project, which includes consideration of the Environmental Impact Statement, all submissions and community feedback, and the RTS.


The Department will make a recommendation to the Minister for Planning for his determination.
