Planning and Building
This section provides information on planning and building requirements at Sydney Olympic Park including designing a development, preparing and lodging a development application, building certification requirements and work related approvals.
All relevant planning and building guidelines, policies and application forms, boundary maps of the town centre and the parklands are available in the Resource Centre.
Under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act (1979), almost all development projects require a planning consent to be obtained through a Consent Authority. Consent can be obtained by lodging a Development Application either through the NSW Department of Planning or Sydney Olympic Park Authority – depending on the category of development being proposed.
In addition to planning related consents, other approvals or a commercial agreement (eg licence/lease) may be required from Sydney Olympic Park Authority. Such approvals/agreements include development in the parklands, development or use of land owned by the Authority and development affecting the Authority’s site operations.
Upon practical completion, developers may be required to provide Sydney Olympic Park Authority with a full set of 'work as executed' documents, for its records. These requirements will be outlined in determination conditions or as part of a lease.
