Parramatta North Urban Transformation (PNUT) Precinct
The Parramatta North Precinct comprises approximately 26 hectares of NSW Government land located along the eastern foreshore of the Parramatta River opposite Westmead Hospital and Parramatta Park, and north of the Parramatta CBD. The lands at Parramatta North were rezoned in 2015 by the Minister for Planning.
The rezoning allows for approximately 2,800 apartment units, 20,000 square metres of commercial floor space, around 4,000 square metres of retail floor space, the preservation of heritage buildings, and approximately 7.1 hectares of public open space including a river foreshore park.
Council in 2017 adopted a precinct–specific DCP Significant further investigation into appropriate land uses is required to be undertaken. Property and Development NSW are responsible for the coordination of redevelopment and transformation of the precinct.
