Carter Street Precinct will be a vibrant, diverse and well-connected new village located close to Sydney Olympic Park and the employment and recreation opportunities of Parramatta.


Carter Street Precinct was rezoned in 2015 for up to 5,500 dwellings, a new village centre, a site for a new primary school and new public open space.


What’s happening now?

We released a revised Master Plan for feedback between 31 August and 28 September 2020. The exhibited documents and submissions received are available on the Planning Portal.


The 2020 revised draft Master Plan was updated based on feedback received in 2018 and included changes in response to the proposed Sydney Metro West station at Sydney Olympic Park.


The Master Plan will be enacted through an amendment to the Auburn Local Environmental Plan 2010. A draft Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) has also been negotiated to enable the delivery of infrastructure for the community and achieve the outcomes of the Master Plan.


The 2020 revised draft Master Plan and VPA propose these key changes:

  • Securing significant public benefits such as 3 hectares land for central open space and 1.88ha for a future school site.
  • More homes within walking distance of the proposed Sydney Metro station.
  • Reduced future car parking rates to help better manage traffic and encourage public transport use in the area.
  • Increased building heights and floor-space ratios for land within walking distance of the proposed Sydney Metro station and near the Carter Street village centre.


We value feedback from the community and will now review all the submissions we received during exhibition.


All feedback and submissions will be carefully considered during finalisation of the masterplan.
