Granville Town Centre has been identified as a priority area by the UrbanGrowth Development Corporation (UGDC) for urban renewal. The UGDC will carry out its functions in partnership with key NSW State agencies, Parramatta and Holroyd City Councils and the Federal Government.
Please refer to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure’s Planning Outcomes Brief and Study here.
The Granville urban renewal precinct occupies a strategic location in greater western Sydney, is well serviced by public transport and is identified as having high potential for social and economic growth within the Parramatta LGA boundary.
The draft Granville urban renewal precinct has an approximate area of 264 hectares.
Whilst the draft urban renewal precinct is defined as one area in the Urban Renewal SEPP Plan, it has three distinct and unique geographical communities comprising:
- Granville Town Centre
- Church St, “Auto Alley” Precinct
- Harris Park Precinct
The UGDC has initially focussed on urban renewal opportunities for the Auto Alley sub-precinct. Auto Alley acts as the southern gateway to Parramatta CBD, is served by two railway stations and a number of bus services, and contains predominantly large land holdings that are unaffected by either heritage items or strata development.
In November 2011, the UGDC was commissioned by Parramatta City Council to conduct an Urban Design Study of Auto Alley, which has informed the preparation of further concept plans for the sub-precinct.
Between 16 May and 6 June 2012, the UGDC, in collaboration with Parramatta and Holroyd City Councils, conducted a non-statutory public exhibition of potential land use and development concepts for Auto Alley to the local community and stakeholders. This included a public information session on Saturday, 26 May 2012 held at the Parramatta City Council Chambers building.
The UGDC is currently considering submissions received regarding this matter. Implementation of future planning controls is able to be progressed by Parramatta & Holroyd Councils having regard to the study and wok completed.
