Have your say on new Sydney Fish Markets plans

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is calling for community feedback on plans to develop the new Sydney Fish Markets, on Bridge Road in Glebe.

The Department’s Executive Director of Compliance, Industry and Key Sites, Anthea Sargeant, said community input is a vital part of the planning process.

Ms Sargeant encouraged everyone to have their say on two proposals that are on exhibition concurrently for the design and construction of the new Sydney Fish Markets.

“The first application, which includes a concept proposal seeking approval for the site’s layout and development controls such as building heights and gross floor area, also seeks approval for demolition of existing structures on the site,” Ms Sargeant said.

“The second application seeks approval for the detailed design of the Fish Market.”

The proposed Sydney Fish Markets complex includes:

  • A new three-storey building with a gross floor area of 26,751 square metres
  • Wholesale services space, boating facilities with up to eight operation wharves for the fishing fleet
  • A multi-purpose wharf for recreational vessels and a private-operated ferry stop
  • Shops, markets, kiosks, food and drink premises with the potential for liquor licenses
  • Multi-functional spaces and areas for exhibitions, events (including community events) and functions and culinary education facilities.
  • Below-ground parking consisting of 417 parking spaces for service and delivery vehicles, smaller coaches and private vehicles
  • Waste management facilities and storage and plant areas.

“Community input is essential to help us make a thorough and rigorous assessment and ensure potential impacts are fully considered,” Ms Sargeant said.

“Once the exhibition closes, the Department will consider all community submissions received, along with feedback from other government agencies and councils.”
