Blackwattle Bay — Finalised Precinct Plan

Blackwattle Bay — Finalised Precinct Plan

The Blackwattle Bay State Significant Precinct Study outlines the proposed rezoning of the existing Sydney Fish Market site and three Private Land Owner sites. The precinct plan incorporates the Bank Street Park, new Sydney Fish Market and the waters of Blackwattle Bay.
The Blackwattle Bay Precinct Plan is connected to country, Tjerruing Blackwattle Bay, and to the special place qualities of the Pyrmont peninsula and Blackwattle Bay. It unites the natural forms of the harbour landscape with the grid structures of the streets and buildings.

The Plan will deliver great public spaces connected with valued existing open spaces including the Glebe Foreshore and Wentworth Park. It prioritises pedestrian and cycle movement, and enhances connections to existing and new public transport infrastructure. The public domain network of open spaces, streets and lanes is central to the plan and defines building envelopes. The open space network celebrates being at the waters edge and integrates community facilities in green spaces and community buildings.

Solar protection of existing open space and the amenity of the new public domain are primary considerations in the creation of the built form massing for Blackwattle Bay. Buildings within these envelopes are flexible and adaptable to a wide variety of land uses and building typologies.

The Plan has been developed with review and input from the Project Review Panel and the Project Working Group comprising the Department of Planning and Environment, Government Architect NSW, Transport for NSW and City of Sydney members.

The rezoning of the Blackwattle Bay precinct has now been finalised by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment.
