What are the next steps?

In August 2023, PDNSW submitted an amended planning proposal with the Northern Beaches Council for the site to help realise the community's vision for the health and wellbeing precinct. The proposal seeks to expand the range of health, wellbeing and related uses permitted on the site under the existing health services facility zoning.

In February 2024, the council referred the amended planning proposal to the Department of Planning, Housing and Infrastructure (DPHI) for review and assessment.

As this planning proposal progresses, the Request for Detailed Proposal (RFDP) will continue to be evaluated to identify a successful project delivery partner to assist with the development of the formal master plan. This plan will include controls which manage height, bulk, and scale, as well as requirements relating to environmental and heritage matters.
