NSW Government review: Pyrmont

City of Sydney is a member of the project team and steering committee for the NSW Government’s Pyrmont Peninsula revitalisation strategy.

Project Status: Planned

What we’re doing

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment has invited the City to help develop a place strategy for the Pyrmont peninsula.

The place strategy will include a simplified planning framework and a placed-based masterplan that addresses the planning priorities of the eastern city district plan, including:

  • identification of sub-precincts
  • principles that respond to the character and potential of sub-precincts
  • an economic strategy and industry attraction program
  • collaborative and inclusive governance arrangements.

The development of a place strategy is the product of the Greater Sydney Commission’s review of planning for Pyrmont in 2019.

Formal public consultation of a draft place strategy and masterplan is expected mid-2020.

For more information about the project or to get involved in community consultation, visit the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s website.
