The Sydenham to Bankstown Urban Renewal 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.
There are 11 station precincts within the corridor. They 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.
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.
Based on your feedback our vision for Sydenham is:
This map shows the key changes that have been made to the Sydenham Station Precinct Plan as a result of your feedback.
The following key actions will be delivered in the next 12 months:
|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 transport. The new metro station at Sydenham 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.|
|Special Infrastructure Contribution||DP&E is preparing a draft Special Infrastructure Contribution plan (SIC) to identify the regional infrastructure improvements required to support growth in the Corridor. The SIC levy will fund a range of community, transport and open space infrastructure.|
|Planning for Schools||The Department of Education will identify locations for new or expanded schools within the corridor based on the growth proposed in the Strategy.|
|Precinct Support Scheme Funding||DP&E will provide funding to Councils through the Precinct Support Scheme to improve amenity and infrastructure within the Corridor.|
|Sydenham Station Creative Hub||Inner West Council will exhibit a Planning Proposal, including potential public domain improvements to Sydenham and Marrickville Roads, to complement the night time uses proposed the Sydenham Station Creative Hub.|
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.
We released the initial draft Strategy and precinct plans in October 2015. Over the past 18 months we’ve also been talking and listening to community feedback to develop the revised draft strategy. You told us:
