Northern CBD Planning Study

Consultation has concluded

The purpose of the study is to carefully assess and manage development pressure that may arise from the arrival of the Sydney Metro in 2024. There will be an entry to Victoria Cross Station located at the corner of McLaren and Miller Streets, North Sydney. The preparation of a consultative planning study is the best way to identify and preserve the valued characteristics of the precinct while managing future development aspirations.

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 northern CBD 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.

Stage 1 - Initial consultation was open from 11 July - 8 August 2019. There will be further opportunities to have your say later in 2019.
