Exciting Plans for Camellia Precinct

Exciting Plans for Camellia Precinct

unnamed“A once in a generation opportunity will see the industrial wasteland transformed into wonderful waterfront living,” said Member for Parramatta, Geoff Lee.


“The NSW Government’s plan is for a new town centre and suburb with 10,000 new homes and 3,000 new jobs on the Camellia site.”


“Careful planning will ensure the right infrastructure is built – with new roads, bridges, integrated public transport, green spaces and shared pathways.”


“Riverfront shared pathways will open up public access to the river – providing a wonderful space for the whole community to enjoy.


“The new town centre will be adjacent to Rosehill Gardens and complement their planned leisure-resort,” said Geoff.


“The area will be made safe through proven methods of remediation and like Rhodes, Olympic Park and Wentworth Point be transformed into wonderful precinct with retail, commercial and residential development.”


“New bridges would provide residents with convenient access to the proposed Rydalmere Technology hub and Silverwater industrial lands,” commented Mr Lee.


“With Parramatta experiencing record levels of demand for more housing, utilising this 354 hectare precinct makes good sense. It puts more home and jobs close to the heart of Parramatta’s CBD – one of the fastest growing cites in NSW.” 


“The Camellia precinct will take another 10-20 years to come to fruition and we look forward to hearing from the community about this exciting new plan,” Geoff said.
