Barangaroo Concept Plan

The Concept Plan for Barangaroo was first approved by the NSW Minister for Planning in February 2007 and covers urban design and policy initiatives.  The Concept Plan is the statutory master planning instrument which guides the redevelopment of Barangaroo.

In February 2009, the NSW Government announced that 120,000 square metres of additional commercial floor space would be built at Barangaroo to help ensure Sydney remains a global headquarters in the Asia Pacific. In November 2009 further amendments were made to refine planning for Barangaroo Reserve and Northern Cove.

In December 2010, the Minister for Planning approved an amendment to the Concept Plan, allowing additional floor space, additional height and a landmark hotel on a public pier.

There have been four amendments to the Concept Plan since the original in 2007.  Links to the applications and approvals can be found below.
