Consultation has concluded

Stage 1 - Initial consultation was open for comment from 11 July to 8 August 2019.

In response to feedback received from initial consultation, the Northern CBD Planning Study has been renamed to be ‘Civic Precinct & Surrounds Planning Study’. Two workshops are planned for the end of November 2019 to have community input to shaping the next stage of the Study.

Visit Civic Precinct and Surrounds Planning Study for more information.

Background

The Civic Precinct and Surrounds is located north of the North Sydney CBD. The commencement of the operation of Sydney Metro in 2024 and the precinct’s proximity to the North Sydney CBD will place significant development pressure on this area in coming years. The Study is important for Council to manage this pressure and meet its commitments to the NSW Government’s North District Plan.

The study seeks to:

  • Identify and retain the urban values of the precinct, e.g. balance heritage and character with any identified growth
  • Explore whether the Civic Precinct and Surrounds area can accommodate managed development growth and to ensure that ad hoc Planning Proposals are avoided.
  • Identify possible public domain improvements e.g. pedestrian links, wayfinding, public open space; consistent with the broad objectives and directions identified in the draft North Sydney CBD Public Domain Strategy (2018).
  • Explore possibilities to achieve public benefit within or on the periphery of the precinct related to any redevelopment that may be identified.

This study is being undertaken concurrently with the draft North Sydney Local Strategic Planning Statement and draft North Sydney Local Housing Strategy (LEP Review). It complements other Masterplans already adopted by Council including St Leonards Park Masterplan, Ward Street Masterplan and North Sydney CBD Public Domain Strategy.
