UDIA NSW Submission on the Camellia Rosehill Place Strategy

UDIA welcomes this opportunity to provide comment on the Draft Camellia–Rosehill Place Strategy , which has been issued for public exhibition by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE).

We are keen to see DPE’s planning vision achieved for this critical precinct, that forms part of the Greater Parramatta Olympic Park area. UDIA supports the proposal to provide the maximum possible opportunity for sustainable urban renewal with jobs and homes, in an area with good public transport accessibility and service infrastructure.

Now more than ever, Government must deliver on housing supply to reduce ongoing housing affordability concerns in what is a strategically located precinct near Sydney’s second CBD. At the same time, DPE must achieve the right land use balance to realise the precinct’s employment potential, which could be offered by existing and new uses.

The Camellia–Rosehill precinct  could provide housing supply over 20-year period. Critical to the planning vision is the delivery of Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail  by Transport for NSW  to achieve maximum land use integration and the desired 30-minute city outcomes.
