Barangaroo Concept Plan
The Concept Plan for Barangaroo was first approved by the NSW Minister for Planning in February 2007 and covers urban design policy initiatives. The Concept Plan is the statutory master planning instrument which sets out the planning and design guidelines of the redevelopment of Barangaroo.
In June 2016, the Minister for Planning approved the current amendment to the Concept Plan, Modification 8. This allowed for the relocation of the landmark hotel which led to a number of other changes including the relocation of the public park, relocation of residential buildings to accommodate the new park and optimise its solar access, revision of the harbour pier, changes to building heights and an increase in the maximum floor space at Barangaroo South.
Since the original Concept Plan in 2007, there have been seven amendments. Descriptions and links to the applications and approvals can be found below.
