Parramatta Road renewal reaches milestone

Planning Minister Rob Stokes released a new draft Parramatta Road Urban Transformation Strategy in September, ahead of the next round of public consultation on the 30-year plan for the corridor.

The community is now invited to give feedback on the draft Strategy, with UrbanGrowth NSW leading a number of consultation events and activities in all ten Local Government Areas along the corridor, over the next three months.

Mr Stokes said the draft Strategy had been prepared in collaboration with councils along the corridor.

“This draft plan has been a collaborative effort, and I’m pleased it addresses community feedback which called for more details about public transport, better walking and cycling options, as well as proposed building heights and density.

“The precinct plans provide principles and targets for growth and development, and integrated land use and transport plans prepared jointly by UrbanGrowth NSW and Transport for NSW.

“We look forward to hearing from the community through the large range of consultation options available.”

Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance welcomed the draft Strategy together with a new blueprint for future transport options along the corridor.

“This is all about doing the groundwork now so future development comes with the knowledge transport is being planned for,” Mr Constance said.
