Melrose Park represents one of Sydney’s biggest urban renewal opportunities, according to City of Plan Strategy and Development executive director Sue Francis, who spoke on behalf ofHoldmark at a recent council meeting.

“Adoption of a holistic approach to development is therefore essential to ensure infrastructure and urban design provisions are adequately considered in an efficient and transparent manner,” she said.

“This is only reasonably and sustainably possible with the preparation of one structure plan.”

Council administrator Amanda Chadwick deferred her decisionto give landowners a chance to work together towards one structure plan for the whole precinct.
