The Parramatta Road Corridor Urban Transformation Strategy (PRCUTS) sets out the NSW Government’s 30 year plan for the Corridor and identifies the future land use, development decisions and long-term infrastructure to be provided. To view the PRCUTS, click here.

The PRCUTS Planning Proposal to deliver Stage 1 of PRCUTS (2016-2023 release areas) has been finalised and the Local Environmental Plan (LEP) made by the Department of Planning and Environment on 16 December 2022.

The Development Control Plan was adopted on 28 March 2023 and came into effect immediately.

The PRCUTS Planning Proposal

The PRCUTS Planning Proposal included new planning controls for the three PRCUTS precincts that are within the City of Canada Bay:

  • Homebush North
  • Burwood-Concord
  • Kings Bay.

The planning controls include maximum buildings heights, densities and building setbacks for the purpose of accommodating wide footpaths, laneways, street trees and cycleways. The controls also include active street frontages and sustainability incentives, amongst other local provisions.

The LEP has now been finalised largely consistent with the post-exhibition version of the Planning Proposal, which was considered by Council on 18 October 2022. The post-exhibition Planning Proposal responded to issues made in submissions during the public exhibition and recommendations of an independent Urban Design Review commissioned by Council.

The LEP can be viewed here and the maps can be viewed here.

Draft DCP

Draft amendments to the City of Canada Bay Development Control Plan (DCP) relating to the Stage 1 release areas of the PRCUTS were also publicly exhibited for community feedback with the Planning Proposal. The DCP provides detailed guidance for future development.

The DCP was adopted by Council on 28 March 2023 and came into effect immediately.

The DCP consists of three sections in Part K – Special Precincts.

And also changes that are more general in nature and are contained in Part B – General Controls.
