Sustainable Development of Sydney Olympic Park

18/10/2016 8:00 am

In 2010, the Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030 was approved, which sets the blueprint for its sustainable development as a vibrant suburb.  The purpose of the Master Plan is to:

  • provide a comprehensive approach to the land's long term development
  • ensure the Park continues to evolve into an active and vibrant town within metropolitan Sydney
  • protect Sydney Olympic Parks' role as the premier destination for cultural, entertainment, recreation and sporting events
  • protect and enhance the public domain
  • provide detailed planning/design principals, and
  • encourage development of the Park, which responds to its context and contributes to the quality of the build environment, future character and cultural significance of the Park.

One third of the development is already committed or complete.  However, as required by NSW Planning and Environment, the Sydney Olympic Park Authority is undertaking a 5 year review to ensure that the Master Plan stays current.  The Authority has worked with other agencies to identify opportunities and address infrastructure gaps.

As a result of the review, the following will be activated:

  • 10,700 new homes for 23,500 residents
  • 34,000 job opportunities
  • retail space increased to 100,000 square metres
  • more local parks
  • potential for new primary and secondary schools

It is intended that the Park continue to be a major event destination, retain its environmental and recreational value as well as provide ongoing support to community development and elite sports.
