Liverpool City Centre

Liverpool City Centre is the centre of business and commercial activity in Liverpool and plays a major retail role in South West of Sydney.   It is home to one of Sydney's major medical precincts based around Liverpool Hospital, Liverpool Courthouse, the Liverpool TAFE, Western Sydney University and University of Wollongong.

Council’s vision for Liverpool City Centre focuses on creating a:

  • Capital of the Great South West,
  • City defined by interesting architecture which is diverse and distinctive,
  • Place where people want to work, live and enjoy,
  • Vibrant 18 hour City Centre characterised by activity and intensity both day and night,
  • Walkable city that offers both living, recreation and work opportunities; and
  • True river city which takes advantage of the amenity provided by its proximity to the Georges River.

Council is currently working on a planning proposal for the City Centre, which proposes altering the zoning applying to the Liverpool City Centre to permit increased mixed use development.  Council believes that rezoning the land in Liverpool City Centre to permit mixed use will encourage greater levels of residential development.  This increased residential population will stimulate demand for retail and other commercial services, acting as a catalyst for further development.

This planning proposal also seeks to facilitate urban form that responds to the character of the different areas, incorporates different building typologies and offers a range of economic opportunities. It is also intended to enable individual owners to develop sites without amalgamation and to improve access to and connectivity within the Liverpool City Centre.

Full details of the planning proposal can be viewed by searching for RZ-10/2015 on Council’s ePlanning portal.
