New Strategy for Wolli Creek

The current planning controls for Wolli Creek have been comprehensively updated to ensure they facilitate a viable mixed use centre and high quality development.

The recent changes to the planning controls include:

  • development of a precinct wide structure plan
  • implementation of a range of land use zones across the precinct
  • rationalisation of the prescriptive 'development site' controls
  • encouraging commercial redevelopment with a development incentive

For more information on the new planning controls for Wolli Creek, please refer to Part 7.1 of the Rockdale Development Control Plan 2011.

Creating a New Community

Infrastructure work commenced in 2002. Existing roads and intersections have been upgraded to provide safe and efficient access to the Wolli Creek Redevelopment Area, including the Wolli Creek Railway Interchange Station.

New link roads and access roads are proposed to create a better road network for the area. These include a new link road from the Princes Highway (opposite Gertrude Street) to Arncliffe Street, a new link road from Levey Street (opposite Gertrude Street) to Marsh Street, a new link road from Lusty Street to Guess Avenue, and a new link road from Princes Highway (opposite West Botany Street) to a new mid-block access road. The northern end of Lusty Street has been renamed Magdalene Terrace. Maps of the proposed link roads and access roads are contained in the Part 7.1.5 Road Network and Vehicular Access in the Rockdale Development Control Plan 2011

The Wolli Creek Redevelopment Area currently has some well-established regional open spaces such as the Cooks River foreshore, Wolli Creek Wetlands and Cahill Park. These spaces can be better utilised with possible future linkages to external regional open space including Waterworth Park, Kendrick Park, Tempe Reserve and the proposed Alexandra Canal redevelopment. The acquisition of land for new or extended open space areas have also been identified within the areas including land for the Lusty Street Reserve, Town Park and extension of Cahill Park along Gertrude Street. The Discovery Point site and grounds of Tempe House contain publicly accessible open space areas and Tempe House and the Cooks River foreshore. A map of the proposed open space areas is contained in Part 7.1.6 Open Space and Movement in the Rockdale Development Control Plan 2011.
