Rowe Street Shopper Carpark Gets the Green Light
Published on 24 October 2019
The Sydney North Planning Panel yesterday approved Council’s development application for a new shopper car park on Rowe Street East in Eastwood.
The new multi-storey shopper car park will be located at 53-71 Rowe Street and will be able to accommodate some 150 cars. Feedback received during Council’s community consultation on the car park has been incorporated into the design, including sustainable features such as electric vehicle charging stations.
City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Jerome Laxale, highlighted the benefits the new car park will bring to Eastwood and the rest of the City of Ryde.
“With its great restaurants, cafes, shopping, culture and recreational opportunities, parking is in high demand in Eastwood. This new car park will go a long way in addressing a current shortage of parking”, Clr Laxale said.
“It will make it even easier for our community and visitors to enjoy everything Eastwood has to offer and provide a boost to our local economy.
“In line with City of Ryde’s commitment to sustainability, Council will be including charging stations for electric vehicles as part of our car park design.”
The development application was lodged by City of Ryde in March 2019. Local Planning Panels are independent panels that determine development applications on behalf of councils in New South Wales and are mandatory under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
After the awarding of a successful tender, construction of the car park is due to begin in 2020.
