The site is located in the Bayside West Precinct of Arncliffe, Banksia and Cooks Cove. The Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) exhibited plans to rezone and revitalise these communities and transform sections of the Princes Highway into a tree-lined boulevard.
There are currently 142 social housing units on the site which, through the proposed rezoning, could make way for a mix of approximately 600 social, affordable and private dwellings in the future (news release).
DPE is reviewing submissions made during the exhibition period and will make a recommendation to the Minister for Planning later this year on the outcomes of the rezoning process.
