Under Consideration

Draft Moorebank Intermodal SEPP


The Moorebank Intermodal Precinct is a nationally significant infrastructure development. It will transform the way freight moves through Port Botany, to deliver a faster, simpler, and more cost-effective service for business and consumers.

The Moorebank Precinct will be an important driver in protecting and strengthening the NSW and Australian economy. It is anticipated an estimated $11 billion in economic benefits and approximately 6,800 jobs will be created over the lifeline of the project.

The NSW Government is proposing a new State Environmental Planning Policy that will apply to the Moorebank Intermodal Precinct (Moorebank Intermodal SEPP). The new SEPP will streamline assessment processes, improve transparency, and speed up delivery of low impact development within the precinct.

The Moorebank SEPP aims to:

  • provide a consistent and efficient planning process for development of the Moorebank Intermodal Precinct;
  • identify additional categories of exempt and complying development within the precinct; and
  • provide greater flexibility with the approved development at Moorebank Precinct, including allowing an increase in height and gross floor for specific areas of the site.

An Explanation of Intended Effect (EIE) has been prepared to provide further details of the proposed Moorebank Intermodal SEPP. The EIE outlines proposed changes, how they will work, and the benefits.
