Princes Highway Corridor Strategy

On Wednesday 4 September 2013 Council adopted the Princes Highway Corridor Strategy. It investigates the area between Wolli Creek and Rockdale, bounded by the Illawarra railway line to the west and properties facing the Princes Highway to the east. The Strategy was funded by the Department of Planning and Infrastructure. A map of the study area is below.

The project work including land use, planning and economic analysis, 3D development modelling, case study research and consultation with community and state government stakeholders has informed a vision for the area. The key features of the vision are:

  • To grow Arncliffe as a residential precinct; and,
  • To revitalise the corridor along the highway for employment uses.

The Strategy includes a recommended approach for putting the vision into place.

An extensive public exhibition/consultation process was undertaken for the draft Strategy during February and March 2013. Information was made available on this website and the "Have Your Say" portal encouraged people to answer a questionnaire and to RSVP to a community information session. Two info sessions were held with residents and with landowner/business owners where a briefing of the Strategy was presented and a discussion forum took place. A total of 1,353 notification letters were sent out to all properties in the study area and surrounds along with an information brochure with some frequently asked questions. These information brochures were also available on the info session evenings, at Council's Customer Service Centre as well as the Rockdale and Arncliffe branch libraries. Copies of the draft Strategy documents were also available at these locations.

The issues raised through submissions and feedback at community information sessions were considered, and in response some aspects of the Strategy were revised. 

The Council report, Strategy and other relevant documents put forward to the meeting on Wednesday 4 September 2013 are available online in Council's Business Papers.

A copy of the adopted Strategy is also available below.
