Public Exhibition Of The Draft Melrose Park Southern Structure Plan

City of Parramatta Council is exhibiting the draft Melrose Park Southern Structure Plan, which was considered by Council at its meeting of 24 June 2019.

Overview of the plan

A Structure Plan is a high-level planning document that aims to act as a guide for future development and ensure that the precinct is developed in a coordinated manner.

The draft Southern Structure Plan broadly identifies the proposed density, road network and open space within the precinct. The draft Southern Structure Plan does not rezone any land within the precinct or change other applicable planning controls such as height or floor space ratio. Changes to these controls will be subject to a future planning proposal that will be subject to a separate community consultation process.
