The biggest ever revitalisation of Sydney Olympic Park hits a milestone today, Wednesday 29 August 2018, with the NSW Planning Minister announcing approval for the next stage of Sydney Olympic Park’s Master Plan 2030.
A blueprint guiding the growth and sustainable development of the Sydney Olympic Park suburb, Master Plan 2030 combines the best of world class sporting and entertainment infrastructure with new homes, jobs and parklands to benefit people and business in the heart of global Sydney.
The 2018 review of the Master Plan 2030 responds to emerging needs of the community as well as plans for wider development within the Greater Parramatta and Olympic Peninsula region. It has been approved with the adoption of several significant enhancements identified from the review.
‘With a new commitment to become a world leading 6-star Green Star Community, an increase in affordable housing, further provision for accessible parking and adjustments to public domain and property development plans, Master Plan 2030 is a significant initiative that will ensure Sydney Olympic Park continues to deliver outstanding social, economic and environmental benefits for the people of Sydney and NSW,” said Planning Minister, Anthony Roberts.
“This plan reflects that Sydney Olympic Park is maturing into one of Sydney’s most dynamic places to live, work and play,” said Minister for Sport and Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres.
“The Olympic legacy burns very brightly in this Master Plan. Even as the skyline changes there is no doubt sport is still firmly planted in the DNA of Sydney Olympic Park,” added Minister Ayres.
“Master Plan 2030 is the most significant Planning announcement since the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It provides certainty for private sector capital investment to benefit the Park and its entire region,” said Sydney Olympic Park Authority CEO, Charles Moore.
On completion of the Master Plan 2030, Sydney Olympic Park will be further activated to provide:
• 10,700 homes for 23,500 residents
• 34,000 job opportunities
• New education sites and local parks
• 100,000 square-metres of additional retail space
• New streets to improve access and widened roads for future light rail corridor, encouraging the use of public transport and non-car commuting modes.
• New buildings to create a lively entertainment hub to support Sydney Olympic Park’s current major venues and complement its existing sports capacity
• Changes to the Local Infrastructure Contributions Fund
