The NSW Department of Planning and Environment has placed the redevelopment of the Sydney Football Stadium (SFS) at Moore Park on public exhibition.

The Department says that it is keen to hear the community’s views on the concept development application which includes the concept proposal for the development of Sydney Football Stadium that comprises:

  • A maximum building envelope for the stadium to accommodate a basement and a new roof over all permanent seating;
  • Maximum stadium capacity of 45,000 seats (55,000 patrons in concert mode) and a new playing pitch;
  • Member areas, premium box/terrace, function lounge, and corporate suite
  • operations;
  • Flood lighting, and stadium video screens;
  • Team, media and administration facilities, food and beverage areas;
  • Public domain works and landscaping; and
  • Identification of the existing Moore Park Carpark 1 (MP1) as the demolition and construction compound.

 The Department’s acting deputy secretary for Planning Services, David Gainsford, says the community is encouraged to give feedback and all submissions will be considered.

“The Department has an important role in the independent assessment process for major development in NSW, including State Significant Developments like this one,” says Gainsford.

Submissions can be made from 14 June to 11 July 2018 on the Department’s major projects website.

Following the assessment of the Concept Proposal and Stage 1 applications, Infrastructure NSW says that it will lodge a Stage 2 development application that will include a “detailed design of the stadium as well as the construction details, construction timelines and operational details of the stadium.”
