Central State Significant PrecinctSkip to main content
An iconic landmark, Central Station is well located in a vibrant area surrounded by leading universities, businesses and is at the heart of a revitalisation of Central Sydney.
The addition of the new Sydney Metro and Sydney Light Rail network presents a unique opportunity to upgrade Central Station and transform the area into an innovation and technology precinct based around a key transport network.
The innovation and technology precinct will be a major hub for tech industries, universities, research institutes, visionaries and start-ups. The precinct will be a leader in collaboration, innovation and jobs for the future.
Nominated for investigation as a State Significant Precinct (SSP), we are working with Transport for NSW, the City of Sydney and the Greater Sydney Commission to plan for the future of the area.
Central SSP is approximately 24 hectares bounded by Pitt Street to the west, Cleveland Street to the south, Eddy Avenue to the north and Elizabeth Street to the east.
The Strategic Vision will:
The rezoning proposal is for the Western Gateway, the first sub-precinct within Central SSP.
TfNSW proposes to amend the planning controls of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 that apply to the Western Gateway area to enable redevelopment for a technology and innovation precinct.
The proposed changes can be found in the Explanation of Intended Effect (EIE).
The draft Strategic Vision and Western Gateway sub-precinct rezoning proposal, including supporting technical documents, were on exhibition from 16 October 2019 until 27 November 2019.
All submissions received will be collated and used by TfNSW to prepare a Response to Submissions.
