Parramatta Road Sector 1 Structure Plan

Parramatta Road, Leichardt and Marrickville

planning framework
completed in 2005
for DoP, Leichardt and Marrickville Councils

The Sector 1 Structure Plan is part of the Parramatta Road Corridor Project, which was directed by the Parramatta Road Taskforce, and is central to the Metropolitan Strategy.  Sector 1 includes Leichhardt and Marrickville, and is characterised by a fine urban layout, continuous main street shops and heritage items.

Our team comprised urban designers, traffic consultants, land economists and landscape architects.

A new equilibrium for the road was proposed with new transit lanes, kerb side parking and enhanced pedestrian amenity.  Camperdown was identified as having the right characteristics and potential to become a creative economy based urban village.  The raw character of its older buildings was proposed to be retained in development for the new creative  industries (educational, arts, recreation, commerce and residential).

Olsson & Associates were also the lead urban design consultants for Sector 4 Parramatta Road, from Strathfield to Parramatta.
