St Leonards and Crows Nest 2036

With a new Sydney Metro station opening at Crows Nest in 2024 there are exciting opportunities to rejuvenate the St Leonards and Crows Nest area with new jobs, open space, infrastructure and homes, while ensuring the local character of the area is maintained and enhanced.


The Department prepared a draft planning package for St Leonards and Crows Nest, which was on exhibition for public comment from October 2018 until February 2019.


You can now view the submissions received on the Draft 2036 Plan, Local Character Statement and Green Plan, the Draft Special Infrastructure Contributions, and the Draft Crows Nest Sydney Metro Station Site Rezoning Proposal.


Precincts – a new approach

The Minister for Planning and Public Space has recently announced a new approach to precinct planning in NSW. This will mean that the Department will continue to prepare, finalise and maintain strategic plans for St Leonards and Crows Nest.


The Department will work with North Sydney Council, Willoughby City Council and Lane Cove Council to ensure that infrastructure planning in St Leonards and Crows Nest aligns with growth.


The Department is also working with Government Architect NSW and Lane Cove Council to undertake a design charrette to assist Lane Cove Council in responding to the independent Planning Commission’s advice on the St Leonards South Residential planning proposal.
