Project Description

Camden Medical Campus, Hermitage Way, Gledswood Hills
State Significant Development
Client: Gregory Hills Corporate Park
Cost: $330 Million
Status: Approved (2017)
Overview

The Camden Medical Campus development was declared to be “Stage Significant Development” due to its status as “health services infrastructure” and capital investment value of over $30 million.

The proposal represents a major employment generating use in Sydney’s south west, providing approximately 400 jobs during construction and 800 direct jobs and 2,400 indirect jobs upon completion and throughout the operations of the development.

This application was approved by the Minister for Planning and Environment in December 2017.

Development

The State Significant Development Application (SSDA) sought consent for a concept plan for the campus and was therefore lodged as “staged” development. Consent was granted for a concept proposal for:

  • A new private hospital, medical centre and ancillary services including:

– Building footprints and envelopes;

– Indicative land uses;

– Vehicular, pedestrian and cycle access;

– Loading facilities;

– Landscaping; and

– Parking

  • A maximum building height of 26.6 metres/6-storeys, maximum GFA of 73,000m² (with 473 new hospital beds) and 1,080 car spaces.

The concept was approved to be constructed in three (3) stages, subject to the submission of future detailed stage DAs.

Our Involvement

City Plan was engaged by Gregory Hills Corporate Park (GHCP) to prepare a Request for Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs), and the subsequent “staged” SSDA for the Camden Medical Campus development.

We worked closely with Camden Council, Roads and Maritime Services, Rural Fire Service and the Department of Planning and Environment throughout the assessment of the application to receive timely approval for the hospital as a major infrastructure investment in Sydney’s south west.
