The Urban Design Landscape Plan (UDLP)

The UDLP outlines the urban design and landscaping objectives for the Rozelle Interchange project (the Project), including details of the transformation of the former Rozelle Rail Yards into an open green space of up to 10 hectares.
The Project is in the final stages of preparing a draft UDLP which will go on public exhibition and consultation in the coming weeks.
Before public exhibition and consultation, an online survey is available for the community to inform us on what aspects of urban design and landscaping they are most interested in learning about. This feedback will be used to ensure the Project provides the information needed during the formal exhibition period.
There is also a Factsheet that outlines further information about the upcoming UDLP....

Thank you for writing to us about your local grocery stores stock supply concerns. The ACCC will continue to actively engage with governments and businesses about potential authorisations that support coordination between competitors that is ordinarily prohibited but which is necessary and in the public interest at this time. For example the application by supermarkets allowing a coordinated approach to best ensure grocery supply.
