Project updates

Project details


The Marrickville Metro Shopping Centre expansion has been approved for 13-55 Edinburgh Road, Marrickville as part of a Major Project Approval (MP09_0191) that was granted by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in March 2012.

The Major Project Approval facilitates uses which are complimentary to the function of the approved shopping centre, but which are technically prohibited in the existing IN1 General Industrial Zoning under Marrickville Local Environmental Plan (MLEP) 2011.

Key features of the planning proposal

The Planning Proposal seeks to amend the Marrickville Local Environmental Plan (MLEP) 2011 to permit retail premises, business premises, child care facilities, medical centres and community facilities on the site and permit these additional permitted uses only in conjunction with the approved shopping centre extension under the Major Project Approval.

The proposed amendment will provide additional uses that are compatible with the approved shopping centres and simplify the approval process for minor works (ie. shop fit-outs).
