UrbanGrowth NSW will be seeking feedback on draft principles that will inform the creation of a masterplan for the Bays Market District, including a rejuvenated Sydney Fish Market.

An online survey on the masterplan will be open on The Bays Precinct website www.thebayssydney.nsw.gov.au from the week commencing Monday, 31 July until Friday, 25 August 2017. The public can also register to attend one of two workshops to be held on Thursday, 10 August and Saturday, 12 August, 2017.

The masterplan will guide the transformation of the Bays Market District, and we want to hear from people of all ages and walks of life.

Located just two kilometres from Sydney’s CBD, the Bays Market District comprises the waters of Blackwattle Bay and land along Bank Street, Pyrmont, including the Sydney Fish Market.

The district is one of eight destinations in the Bays Precinct Urban Transformation Program.

The masterplan will consider opportunities for public open space, community and recreational facilities as well as residential, employment and supporting maritime uses within the district.

We are committed to engaging with the community throughout the masterplanning process.

The NSW Government’s vision for the Bays Market District is to rejuvenate the Sydney Fish Market and expand the fresh food offering, creating a world-class Bays Market District connected to the water; to provide compatible housing suitable to living on the edge of the CBD; and to seamlessly integrate the district with Wentworth Park.
