The planning process
The NSW Government has lodged a State Significant Development Application (SSDA) with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPI&E).
As part of the application, Infrastructure NSW has prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
The EIS for the Stadium Australia Redevelopment, which includes information relating to the design, construction and operation of the redeveloped facility, was on public exhibition from 26 September to 15 November 2019.
We encouraged the community to have its say on the redevelopment so feedback can be considered as part of DPIE’s assessment.
The EIS and supporting technical documentation can be viewed on the DPIE’s major projects website here.
On 17 July 2019 the Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs) were received from the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPI&E).
Community feedback and input is vital to the overall success of the project.
Prior to lodging the development application and EIS, consultation took place with key stakeholders and the local community to help inform the the proposal.
Thank you to those of you who provided feedback during pre-lodgement consultation phase. All feedback gathered during that phase is detailed in the Stakeholder Consultation Report which has been appended to the EIS.
As part of the planning process Infrastructure NSW will consider and respond to all feedback submitted to DPIE during the exhibition period.
Should you have any questions on the EIS or supporting documentation please get in contact with the project via the email or phone number listed below.
