UDIA NSW urges government to invest in infrastructure to turn Master Plan into reality in Sydney Olympic Park 

Media Release

The release of the Sydney Olympic Park Authority’s Master Plan 2030 is welcomed by the Urban Development Industry of Australia (UDIA) NSW, cementing a strategic vision for Sydney Olympic Park expanding it from an events venue to a city where people can live, work and play.

“The Master Plan is an opportunity for the urban development industry to collaborate with Government to create a Smart City in Western Sydney, and UDIA NSW urges the government to significantly invest in the infrastructure that will be required to increase the connectivity of the growing city,” Stephen Albin, CEO UDIA NSW said.

“Sydney Olympic Park has evolved from the home of the Olympics to a major events destination and community.”

“However, the challenge is to continue investing in the inner Western Sydney area, to enable urban development to continue to thrive and reverse the trend of Olympic villages worldwide that remain under utilised.”

“The bare bones exist for developing Sydney Olympic Park into one of Western Sydney’s most liveable, affordable and connected cities.”

“The Master Plan 2030 releases by the Sydney Olympic Park Authoritiy provide a strategic vision to ensure the area is utilised to its full potential.”

“UDIA NSW welcomes the plan for more than 10,000 new homes, 34,000 job opportunities, schools, retail space and local parks by 2030, and expects the Government to match this investment with the infrastructure required.”

The Urban Development Institute of Australia NSW is the thought leader on the growth of the urban development industry today and the creation of smarter cities of the future. UDIA NSW is the leading property industry body, representing more than 500 member companies and agencies across the public and private sector.
