North Sydney CBD Overview

The planning regime for the North Sydney CBD including intergrated transport, growth and the Public Domain Strategy.


Integrated Transport, Growth and Public Domain Strategy


In February 2003 Council completed a new planning regime for the North Sydney Centre (central business district and fringe areas). The planning regime for the Centre integrates land use with transport and presents a three-pronged approach to development of the public domain, private domain and transport infrastructure.


The new planning regime for the Centre finalises a comprehensive review of planning in North Sydney that started in 1980, with the introduction of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, and has seen two comprehensive LEP's gazetted.


The new planning regime for the North Sydney Centre introduces concepts and development controls that have not been tried before, and also facilitates a partnership between developers, Council and State Government in the upgrading of public transport infrastructure in North Sydney. It focusses on four key areas:


  1.  Local Environmental Plan
  2.  Railway Contributions
  3.  Development Control Plan
  4.  Public Domain Strategy
