THE New South Wales Government last week said it was delivering on its promise of a 'short-sharp' review of the controversial $6 billion Barangaroo development by announcing the terms of reference for the review.
"Today I release the terms of reference for the Barangaroo review. The review will be jointly chaired by two of Victoria's most experienced strategic design experts – boasting impressive national and international reputations," Planning and Infrastructure Minister Brad Hazzard said.
Meredith Sussex and Shelley Penn have been appointed as joint chairwomen of the eight week review.
The Minister said the terms of reference for the independent review have been developed in consultation with key stakeholders.
It will undertake a review in relation to Barangaroo of the compliance with the planning approval processes (and decision making in relation to such processes) relevant to:
- The Concept Plan approval MP06_0162 (Modification 4) including in relation to land use mix, scale/density and relationship to the Sydney Central Business District;
- The adequacy of planned transport arrangements to meet the demand generated by the site at full development;
- The proposed Headland Park; and
- The relocation of the Cruise Terminal to White Bay.
