About the report

The Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, in collaboration with NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure, and Parramatta City Council, recently commissioned a technical report to provide greater certainty for future development in Parramatta CBD.

The ‘Development in Parramatta City and the Impact on Old Government House and Domain’s World and National Heritage Listed Values: Technical Report’ will help inform planning and decision makers, and provide guidance for developers about where new building activity is likely to impact heritage values and how this may be appropriately managed.

The Report identifies, documents and describes views and settings that are important with regard to the World and National Heritage listed values of Old Government House and Domain. In particular, it maps areas of sensitivity including a ‘highly sensitive area’ where development risks having a significant impact under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The Report also suggests ‘Future Development Guidelines’ to assist in mitigating development impacts.
