The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is calling for community feedback on plans for a $47 million revamp of Sydney’s iconic Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park.


The Department’s Executive Director of Infrastructure Assessments, David Gainsford, said community input is a vital part of the planning process and encouraged everyone to have their say on the proposals by 7 August 2019.


“We want to hear what everyone thinks of the draft plans for the Royal Hall of Industries building,” Mr Gainsford said.


“Plans for the new centre include high-performance training facilities for the Sydney Swans, the Swans Academy, the NSW Swifts Netball Club and the future Sydney Swans AFL Women’s team.


“It includes an international standard indoor netball court, a multipurpose indoor function and recreations space for community events and a museum to tell the history of the 105-year-old building.”


The Entertainment Quarter would remain available for events such as the Mardi Gras after-party and concerts.


The centre would also become home to the GO Foundation and Clontarf Foundation, and the Australian Red Cross Blood Service donation centre.


“The Department wants to hear the community’s views on this proposal to help us make a thorough and rigorous assessment and ensure any potential impacts are fully considered,” Mr Gainsford said.


“People can also sign up on the Department’s Major Projects website for regular project updates.


“Once the exhibition closes, the Department will consider all community submissions received, along with feedback from other government agencies and councils.”


Have your say on this proposal by Wednesday 7 August 2019.
