The Camellia-Rosehill precinct plays a key economic role in the Greater Parramatta and Olympic Peninsula (GPOP). It has some complicated planning issues including the need for a co-ordinated remediation and flood strategy, infrastructure funding and potential land use conflicts.


With Camellia-Rosehill soon to benefit from the Parramatta Light Rail, we have prepared a draft place strategy for the precinct, in collaboration with City of Parramatta, state agencies, landowners and the community. 


Draft Camellia-Rosehill Place Strategy

The draft Camellia-Rosehill Place Strategy was exhibited for public comment from 17 December 2021 to 4 March 2022. Thank you for your feedback, which will inform the final place strategy and help us plan for the future of Camellia-Rosehill.


See the exhibition documents on the planning portal.


The draft place strategy is a 20-year plan to breathe new life into Camellia-Rosehill, building on its industrial past and taking advantage of its most vital asset – the Parramatta River.


The Camellia-Rosehill of the future will be clean, green and sustainable with:

  • a thriving town centre with an 18-hour entertainment precinct
  • up to 14,500 jobs
  • 10,000 new homes supported by infrastructure and new public open spaces
  • improved transport connections including light rail, road upgrades and cycling and pedestrian paths
  • the Parramatta River foreshore opened up as a centre of community activity
  • a new urban services precinct and retention of heavy industrial land that will ensure Camellia-Rosehill continues to be an industrial powerhouse for Sydney and NSW. 


Caring for Country is at the heart of our plans with an integrated approach to land use, buildings, heritage protection, environmental management, transport, water and sustainability. 

The draft place strategy also builds on previous work and work underway, including:


What happens next

We will carefully consider all feedback to the exhibition as we finalise the place strategy.


The place strategy will not rezone land. The department will work closely with Council and other key stakeholders to implement the place strategy through a Council or state-led rezoning process.
