Greater Parramatta is fast emerging as the centre of Sydney and will experience significant growth and change over the next 20 years.


In November 2019, The Greater Sydney Commission released the draft pilot Place-based Infrastructure Compact (PIC) for Greater Parramatta and the Olympic Park Peninsula (GPOP).


Read about the GPOP PIC

The GPOP PIC seeks to better align growth with the provision of infrastructure and services.


The GPOP PIC is currently being considered by Government and when finalising the PIC will play an important role in shaping the direction and shaping of planning and growth in GPOP.

A new approach to planning

The Minister for Planning and Public Space has announced a new approach to precinct planning in NSW.


We will continue to prepare, finalise and maintain strategic plans for Greater Parramatta and Olympic Peninsula (GPOP). The new precinct will expand the previous boundaries of Greater Parramatta to align with the Greater Sydney Commission vision for GPOP.


The Greater Parramatta to the Olympic Peninsula (GPOP) area is a 6,000-hectare area at the core of the Central City. The GPOP PIC intends to align growth and infrastructure provision across 26 precincts within the GPOP corridor.

What's happened so far?

We exhibited the Greater Parramatta Interim Land use and Implementation Plan from July to September in 2017. This is supported by a Ministerial 9.1 Direction.


The submissions and documents are available on the Planning Portal.

What's happening next?

We will prepare a new strategic plan to guide development in accordance with the PIC outcomes when it's endorsed by the Government, working closely with other agencies to coordinate infrastructure and growth.


After establishing a strategic planning framework for GPOP, we will work collaboratively with the City of Parramatta Council and Cumberland Council to support them in undertaking the detailed planning, including the rezoning of the individual precincts.
