Planning process

To unlock the precinct for urban renewal, Infrastructure NSW has followed a State Significant Precinct planning process.


Public exhibition of the State Significant Precinct plan

In July 2021, the State Significant Precinct Study was placed on public exhibition, providing a formal opportunity for the community and stakeholders to provide feedback on the precinct plan and proposed planning framework.

The State Significant Precinct Study included a range of technical assessments in response to the issued Study Requirements that investigate the impacts of the renewal, ranging from traffic and wind assessments through to solar (sun access) performance.

Read our Guide to the State Significant Precinct Study or view all technical planning documents on the Blackwattle Bay Planning Portal.


Response to Submissions

Infrastructure NSW has reviewed the 2,400 submissions received during the exhibition.

A Response to Submissions Report and Revised Precinct Master Plan have been prepared. The below table is a summary of the feedback received and what’s been changed in response.


Next steps

Once determined, all renewal within Blackwattle Bay would follow the planning framework and controls. For example, new residential buildings would need to follow a Development Application planning process as outlined in the Determined framework.
