Pyrmont Planning Review

Review of the Planning Framework for the Western Harbour Precinct including the Pyrmont Peninsula

In August 2019, the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces requested the Greater Sydney Commission review the effectiveness of the planning framework to deliver the Government's vision for the Western Harbour Precinct and Pyrmont Peninsula, as the western gateway of Sydney's CBD.

The Commission has finished its review and, on 30 September 2019, provided the Minister and the Premier with its findings and recommendations.
