The Urban Taskforce submission supports the corridor as it will open up additional land in Sydney’s south west for development. Existing residential development should be disturbed as little as possible by the railway and land use around the railway stations should be maximised to ensure the benefits of the rail line can be realised.

Our submission focuses on the development opportunities associated with the Sydney Metro – CBD & South west project. Governance is crucial and Transport for NSW must work closely with the Department of Planning & Environment to ensure the benefits of this  new transport infrastructure are fully realised. Areas around metro stations must be reviewed to ensure land use zones and development controls will maximise development potential. The Urban Taskforce argues that strategic planning should upzone areas around stations for high density residential development where appropriate to allow the property market to deliver additional housing in accessible areas close to public transport.

While we are very supportive of the Parramatta Renewal project/s we were somewhat critical of the material that was placed on exhibition. In particular we were disappointed with the lack of detail provided to support the housing and jobs targets and urban form suggested in the draft strategy. We said that:
• The aims of the draft strategy are too conservative – more jobs and housing are possible;
• Local government support was expected and that the Government must not give in to local councils who do not wish to participate in the urban renewal process;
• the development industry urgently needs planning certainty and unfortunately what has been placed on exhibition cannot by any stretch of the imagination be considered a “strategy”.
