The planning process
The NSW Government is proceeding to the next phase in the project and commencing community consultation before lodging a development application.
On 17 July 2019 the Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs) were received from the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPI&E).
Infrastructure NSW is currently preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) as part of the State Significant Development Application (SSDA) to be lodged with the DPI&E in the coming months.
Prior to lodging the EIS, consultation is taking place with key stakeholders and the local community to gain feedback on the proposal. See below 'Community Consultation' section for more details.
There will also be an opportunity to ‘Have your Say’ when DPIE place the EIS on public exhibition late this year.
Community feedback and input is vital to the overall success of the project. Prior to lodging the Environmental Assessment, we would like to hear from you.
We recently held two community information events where the public had an opportunity to ask questions of the project team and our technical experts, learn more about the planning and design process and provide feedback. The two sessions were held on Saturday 17 August 2019 at the Bulldogs vs Rabbitohs game and on Tuesday 20 August 2019 outside Sydney Olympic Park Train Station.
If you weren’t able to attend one of our community events, please take a look at the boards which were on display and provide any feedback to the project via the email or phone number listed below.
