Chinatown and City South public domain plan

Consultation has concluded

Exhibition closed

The Chinatown Public Domain Plan, which was adopted by Council in 2010 has been placed under review due to significant changes in the southern part of the city centre around Chinatown and Darling Harbour, referred to as City South.

The significant changes and developments that present a need to update the plan include:

  • the renewal of Darling Harbour (Darling Harbour Live and International Convention Centre Sydney)
  • the completion of the Goods Line (formerly known as Ultimo Pedestrian Network)
  • the recent increase in student housing and residential developments
  • changes to the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and Powerhouse Museum campuses
  • expected transport changes with the construction of the CBD and South East Light Rail (CSELR) line.

Spackman Mossop Michaels landscape architects were engaged to develop concept designs for key streets in the area to inform public domain coordination works with government agencies, private sector and the City’s capital works program, and to review work previously developed and approved by Council in the 2010 plan.

Implementation priorities have been identified in the draft plan to help the City formulate future capital works budgets. One of the key priorities for the precinct is to finalise a master plan for Belmore Park to deliver public domain improvements to the park. An implementation and preliminary cost plan will be developed and reported back to Council for adoption with the Chinatown and City South public domain plan when public consultation closes.

Drop in session

The City staff will be at Haymarket Library to show you the current plans and answer any questions. Please also note that there will be a Mandarin and Cantonese translator available on the day.

Monday 14th September
Morning: 9-11.00am
Afternoon: 4.00-6pm

Exhibition details

The exhibition closed on Wednesday 30 September 2015 at 6pm.

Your feedback will be incorporated into a report for Council when it considers adopting the plan.
