The Bayside West Precincts are vibrant, attractive and connected communities, where people live and work. Located 10kms from the CBD and adjacent to Sydney Airport, the precincts have been built on great access to public transport, community facilities, new open spaces, shops and local services.


The Bayside West Precincts 2036 Plan was released on 9 September 2018.


The Arncliffe and Banksia Precincts have now been rezoned to implement the strategic land use and infrastructure planning in the Bayside West Precincts 2036 Plan.


The changes to the Arncliffe and Banksia Precincts have been made through amendments to the Rockdale Local Environmental Plan 2011 and maps, these can be found on the NSW Legislation website and an overview here.


Two new section 9.1 Ministerial Directions are in place to ensure the Bayside West Precincts 2036 Plan, including the planning principles for Cooks Cove, are considered by relevant planning authorities in plan making.
More details in Section 9.1 Direction (formerly section 117(2)):


The Green Plan for Arncliffe and Banksia has also been finalised. The recommendations of the Green Plan have been incorporated into the Bayside West Precincts 2036 Plan and the rezoning of the Arncliffe and Banksia Precincts, including a new 7,000 square-metre park, a short walk from Arncliffe town centre, on the corner of Arncliffe Street and Burrows Street. This park will be masterplanned in collaboration with Bayside Council and the local community to include recreation space, children’s play areas, an off-leash dog area and opportunities for community facilities.




To support the delivery of Bayside West Precincts 2036 and the rezoning, a draft Special Infrastructure Contribution (SIC) has been prepared for the Bayside West Precincts. More information can be viewed here.


The Department would like to thank the people of Arncliffe and Banksia for their valuable feedback and ongoing assistance and patience throughout the planning process.
