The Camellia-Rosehill precinct plays a significant strategic role in Greater Parramatta and Olympic Peninsula (GPOP) through its contribution towards the GPOP economic corridor. However, it has some complicated constraints that require planning to be holistic and strategic, 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. Read the government response to the Recommendations Report.


The PIC suggests two options for the future of Camellia-Rosehill. The land could be retained for urban services, or a new town centre could be developed in Camellia-Rosehill, providing issues such as land remediation and infrastructure needs are resolved before any rezoning.


What’s happening next?

We are preparing the draft Camellia-Rosehill Place Strategy (the place strategy) in collaboration with the City of Parramatta Council, government agencies, landowners and the community. The place strategy will build on previous work, including the extensive studies and community input provided for the Draft Camellia Land Use and Infrastructure Strategy (2015) and the Draft Camellia Town Centre Master Plan (2018). 


The place strategy aims to provide an integrated 20-year vision for the precinct, guide future land use and infrastructure investment, and ensure it makes economic sense. 

We plan to put the draft place strategy on public exhibition for comment in October 2021.
