Located two kilometres west of the CBD, the Bays Precinct includes 80 hectares of foreshore land which are subject to the Sydney Harbour Foreshores Authority Act 1998. The Authority owns two significant parcels of foreshore land in the precinct: the White Bay Power Station site and the former Rozelle Rail Yards. The Bays Precinct Urban Renewal Program has been established to regenerate the foreshore and bays.
The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority is one of the major government stakeholders involved in the Bays Precinct Urban Renewal Program. It has a special role in relation to advising on public domain outcomes. The Authority also has added responsibility in the precinct to manage the White Bay Power Station, including protecting its heritage significance, and the Rozelle Rail Yards, including management of a number of industrial tenancies.
Milestones acheived by the Authority
- 2013: Steering of Bays Precinct Implementation Committee established to implement various recommendations of the Bays precinct Taskforce Strategic Framework report to Government
- 2014: Signed agreement with UrbanGrowth NSW to assist in Bays Precinct Urban Renewal Program
The Bays Precinct Urban Renewal Program is a whole-of-government approach being led by UrbanGrowth NSW.
