Marrickville Employment Lands Study Review

Consultation has now closed on this project. Thank you to everyone who contributed. A summary of your feedback will be available on this website shortly.

We have recently reviewed the 2008 Marrickville Employment Lands Study. This study describes the changing nature of industry in the region and its impact on the future of Marrickville’s employment lands.

It shows there is spare capacity for some loss of industrial land, but also highlights the strategic value of Marrickville’s employment lands, particularly the core Marrickville/Sydenham industrial area, which includes the Victoria Road Precinct. It broadly recommends that the core Marrickville/Sydenham industrial area be retained with the potential for some live-work, creative industries and night-time entertainment.
