Rhodes East priority precinct welcomed

15 September 2017 | Planning

City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas welcomed today’s announcement by the Department of Planning and Environment of the Rhodes East draft plans and confirmation that the area will be treated as a priority precinct.

“City of Canada Bay approached the Department of Planning and Environment in 2014 to nominate Rhodes East as a Priority Precinct. It is exciting to see the ideas put forward then coming to fruition,” said Mayor Angelo Tsirekas. 

“Our initial request was based on objectives developed in conjunction with the University of Sydney’s Future Cities Collaboration (now Cities Leadership Institute) with objectives seeking to deliver sustainable urban renewal in Rhodes East,” Mayor Tsirekas said.

In early 2016, the Department began work with the City of Canada Bay to determine the area’s potential to undergo urban renewal through creating jobs and providing new homes, shops and services. The draft Rhodes East plans now on public exhibition closely reflect the original objectives set out by the City of Canada Bay at the inception of the project.

The draft plans provide the precinct with a balance between development and urban amenity, providing diverse housing types and infrastructure to support both the existing and future residents.

Note: The draft plans are being exhibited by the Department of Planning and Environment from 14 September to 10 November on the Department’s website.
