The Camellia-Rosehill precinct plays a significant strategic role in Greater Parramatta and Olympic Peninsula through its contribution towards the GPOP Economic Corridor. However, it has a number of complicated constraints that require planning to be holistic and strategic, rather than ad-hoc, including the need for a co-ordinated remediation and flood strategy, a mechanism to fund infrastructure required to support growth and resolution of potential land use conflicts.


With Camellia-Rosehill soon to benefit from the Parramatta Light Rail, we plan to prepare a place strategy for the precinct, in collaboration with City of Parramatta, state agencies, landowners and the community.


The place strategy will examine Camellia-Rosehill’s potential to become a vibrant hub with more opportunities to be explored for the creation of jobs, housing, entertainment facilities, open space and a promenade along the Parramatta River, informed by detailed environmental studies.

What’s happened so far?

In 2018 we exhibited the draft Master Plan and supporting technical studies to the community for their feedback.


All of the exhibition documents and submissions are available on the Planning Portal.


In November 2019, the Greater Sydney Commission released The Place-based Infrastructure Compact (PIC)


The PIC is a strategic planning model that looks holistically at a place and how it can be planned to better align with growth.


The PIC suggests two options for the future of Camellia-Rosehill. The land could be retained for urban services, or, if the Government chooses to pursue a new town centre for Camellia-Rosehill, the GSC recommended a number of matters should be addressed before any rezoning.


We agree Camellia-Rosehill has complex issues that need to be addressed at the strategic level, which is why we are now preparing a place strategy for the precinct.

What’s happening next?

We will start working on a draft place strategy for the Camellia-Rosehill precinct in 2021.
