The Department of Planning and Environment has issued a Gateway determination to allow a planning proposal for revitalised town centres in Sydney’s east to proceed to exhibition.


The Kensington and Kingsford Planning Proposal (K2K) submitted by Randwick City Council will transform the corridor into vibrant communities and will encourage exciting new residential and commercial developments in Kensington and Kingsford along the Anzac Parade Corridor.


Deputy Secretary of Planning Services, Marcus Ray, said the new town centres are located less than 10km from the Sydney CBD and will be serviced by the future CBD to South East Light Rail Line, currently under construction.


“This revitalisation of Kingsford and Kensington will provide both commercial and residential opportunities, right along the light rail line that is already under construction along the Anzac Parade corridor,” Mr Ray said.


“Approximately 1,000 new jobs will be generated through the revitalisation and it is anticipated that Council will respond to the conditions of the Gateway determination and proceed to community consultation in 2018.”


The planning proposal was awarded the Greater Sydney Commission’s Great Plan Award as well as Planning Institute of Australia’s Planning Excellence Award in 2017.
