Wentworth Point NSW Government industrial holding set for rezoning

An industrial holding at Wentworth Point currently owned by the NSW Government has been advertised for a rezoning proposal.

It's outcome could be a vibrant new residential community with 2,300 homes and new public access along 1.2km of the Sydney Harbour foreshore.

The Department of Planning and Infrastructure issued plans last month to revitalise the 18.6 ha of government land at Wentworth Point over the next two decades.

The key elements of the plan include:

· a new 3.9 ha peninsula park along with three new pocket parks

· foreshore cycling and walking paths at least 20m wide – opening up this area to public access for the first time

· an 18-classroom school with playing fields by 2017

· upgrades to nearby Hill and Bennelong Rds to accommodate the increased population

· A range of low, mid and high-rise residential buildings

· new maritime uses adjacent to Homebush Bay for rowing/kayaking facility, dry boat storage and supporting retail and businesses

Community comments are due by August 16.
