Parramatta’s staggering building boom continues with nearly $2 billion worth of projects being registered in a single day with the Sydney West Joint Regional Planning Panel.
$390 million of the Parramatta projects are for proposed offices in Sydney’s second CBD. The Parramatta Square proposal registered with the Planning Panel projects is in the heart of the CBD and is estimated to bring 11,000 jobs to Western Sydney on completion and directly employ 3,800 people during construction if approved.
The Department of Planning and Environment has also determined that seven planning proposals can proceed to public exhibition for community feedback. The proposals will provide up to 1,220 new jobs if approved.
Planning Minister Rob Stokes said the planning system was working to deliver more jobs in Western Sydney.
“Western Sydney is experiencing a jobs and construction bonanza like we’ve never seen before, and these projects show strong confidence in the building sector and the local economy,” Mr Stokes said.
Member for Parramatta Geoff Lee said he was pleased to see the number of projects being put forward in his local area.
“We are well and truly in the midst of Parramatta’s renaissance,” Dr Lee said.
The Parramatta building proposals were registered with the Sydney West Planning Panel on June 22, and will be exhibited for community consultation and assessed by the City of Parramatta Council.
Full details of the development applications registered with the JRPP will be available on the City of Parramatta website once they go on exhibition: http://www.parracity.nsw.gov.au/
