COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT - BLACKWATTLE BAY PRECINCT PLANNING
The community is being asked to provide feedback on plans that will revitalise Blackwattle Bay, deliver new open space and return inaccessible parts of Sydney Harbour to the public for the first time in decades.
With the new Sydney Fish Market sitting at its heart, the NSW Government is refining a plan to transform Blackwattle Bay into a stunning waterfront destination where Sydneysiders will live, work, visit and love.
The NSW Government has developed three precinct plan scenarios that illustrate how urban renewal of Blackwattle Bay could look and feel. These scenarios are designed to facilitate a conversation to inform a final precinct plan that we will submit to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for assessment.
We’re calling on the community to provide feedback on the three scenarios which will help inform a final precinct plan.
To view the scenarios please download the brochure.
Consultation on the Blackwattle Bay Precinct Plans has now closed. To stay up to date on news about Blackwattle Bay please subscribe to our mailing list.

NEW SYDNEY FISH MARKET
The NSW Government is delivering an authentic new Sydney Fish Market which will sit at the heart of a revitalised Blackwattle Bay and return inaccessible parts of the Harbour foreshore to the community.
The project will modernise and improve the much-loved Sydney Fish Market, while retaining its authenticity to create a world-class cultural icon that attracts locals and showcases our fresh seafood and beautiful city to the world.
Relocating the current Fish Market to the head of Blackwattle Bay will unlock an incredible opportunity on the current fish market site to deliver a vibrant, sustainable place that is connected to Sydney’s waterfront.
Planning consent for the project was granted on 17 June 2020. This decision clears the way for work to begin. Early demolition works are expected to commence in the coming months, with a stage one contract to be awarded shortly.
A tender process is also underway for the major construction phase, which is expected to start in early 2021.
Infrastructure NSW, on behalf of the NSW Government, submitted two associated State Significant Development Applications (DA) to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) for assessment:

A masterplan is being developed for the current fish market site based on the principles that were developed with the community through the The Bays Precinct Sydney Transformation Plan and further consultation in 2017. The Blackwattle Bay masterplan will consider design options to deliver community facilities, open space, a promenade, pedestrian and cycling access as well as new homes, shops and jobs. We will continue to work with the community as this project progresses.
The new Sydney Fish Market is expected to be open in late 2024.
