The Interim Plan outlines actions to support the delivery of new homes and jobs. These will be monitored and updated regularly.

Declare Greater Parramatta as a ‘Growth Area’, reflecting its importance as a major economic opportunity for the West Central District and Greater Sydney.

  • Commence planning investigations for Wentworthville, Burwood, Strathfield and Homebush precincts.


Action 4: Finalise Planning

Finalise planning for Sydney Olympic Park and Carter Street:

  • Finalise the 5 year review of the Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030 (2016 Review) with the Sydney Olympic Park Authority, offering new opportunities for retail, office and residential space at Sydney Olympic Park and a more active and vibrant town centre, outside of major events.
  • Amend the plans for Carter Street to accommodate the westbound Hill Road Off Ramp.


Action 5: Promote Regional Connectivity and Activity

Enhance the area's open spaces, walkways and cycleways by providing funding through Special Infrastructure Contribution and Precinct Support Scheme for more open space along the Parramatta River for people to enjoy, as well as improving access with new and upgraded walking and cycling paths.

Continue to work with Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime Services to create an accessible and well connected accessible city including:

  • Planning for future major projects such as the Parramatta Light Rail and Sydney Metro West.
