The government requested the Greater Sydney Commission to review Pyrmont’s planning controls and comments are due by the end of the month. The area under review includes Pyrmont and part of Ultimo to Broadway, the Fish Market, Darling Harbour and the Goods Line and Wentworth Park.

You can make an online submission and request a 10 minute presentation to commission officers. Comments close Monday 16 September: HERE
