The Sydenham to Bankstown Corridor Strategy provides a planned approach to growth, with infrastructure delivery and development co-ordinated along the corridor.


The Strategy plans for new homes and jobs over the next 20 years and builds on the Sydney Metro City and Southwest project.


The station precincts are already great places to live, and each has its own unique qualities. This Strategy will enhance the precincts by: valuing neighbourhood character, renewing town centres, providing improved open spaces and community services and facilities.


A community information session was held at Campsie on 3/08/2017. A description of this event can be viewed at the link below:


Exhibition on the revised draft Strategy closed on 3 September. We are now considering the community submissions and working on the Final Strategy. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.


Planned Precinct

Campsie was announced as a Planned Precinct by the NSW Government as part of a housing affordability package on 1 June 2017. Planning for these Precincts is coordinated by state and local governments, to help ensure infrastructure such as schools, parks, community facilities, public transport and road upgrades is delivered to support community needs.


Master planning for this precinct will start shortly and will:

  • build on the precinct plans developed as part of the Sydenham to Bankstown Urban Renewal Corridor Strategy
  • involve more detailed studies and community consultation
  • result in rezoning of the precinct.

  • Future development is designed well and positively contributes to the public domain.
  • Beamish Street will be supported and benefit streetscape improvements.
  • New opportunities for open space and community facilities to support the growing population.
  • Anzac and Carrington Squares are protected as part of the future growth of Campsie Station Precinct.
  • Enhance connections between Campsie District Centre and the Cooks River.
  • A potential new park along the rail line could provide a new and interesting place for leisure and recreation.

Action Description
Design of GreenWay South West The Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E) is preparing a concept landscape master plan for a shared pedestrian and cycle link and linear park should surplus rail land become available.
Public Domain and Station Access Plan Sydney Metro will prepare a Public Domain and Station Access Plan for improved station design, accessibility and interchange with other modes of transport. The new metro station at Campsie will provide improved pedestrian and bicycle access.
Finalisation of the Strategy and Local Planning Direction DP&E will finalise the Strategy including a local planning direction (a Section 9.1 Direction) to guide future development.

Next steps

We will use community feedback to produce the final Strategy. Once finalised, we will continue to work with stakeholders to deliver the Strategy and plans over the coming years including master planning and rezoning of Campsie.

Previous feedback

We released the initial draft Strategy and precinct plans in October 2015. Over the past 12 months we’ve also been talking and listening to community feedback to develop the revised draft strategy. You told us:

  • New, improved and connected cycleways, walkable neighbourhoods increased parks and open space are important to you.
  • Traffic congestion needs to be addressed, particularly on Wonga Street, Evaline Street, Ninth Avenue, Beamish Street and Brighton Avenue.
  • Public transport options in Campsie need to be improved.
  • Strong design principles and sustainable building controls need to guide new development.
  • Good design of new apartment development is important.

More detailed information on your feedback can be found in the Campsie Station Precinct Plan.
