Relocations to Western Sydney and the Regions
Property NSW is implementing and monitoring the Government’s Decade of Decentralisation policy. The aim of the policy is to relocate public sector jobs from the Sydney CBD to metropolitan Sydney and regional locations with a particular focus on Western Sydney. The Government’s target is to relocate and consolidate more than 3,000 public servants to new offices in Parramatta, Liverpool, and Penrith to stimulate economic growth, long-term job generation and provide jobs closer to home.
Property NSW has specialist teams who are currently working closely with the nominated NSW Government departments to ensure their relocation requirements are met and Government’s targets are achieved. In keeping with the Decade of Decentralisation policy, Property NSW's current relocation projects include:
- Parramatta - DFSI, DoI and DPE
- Liverpool - FACS
- Penrith - TBA
Our team has secured the largest ever government agency leasing commitment in Western Sydney, with more than 62,000 square metres of A-Grade office accommodation to be built by Walker Corporation at 4 Parramatta Square. The new building will accommodate at least 4,000 public service roles, including more than 1,600 roles from the Department of Planning and Environment relocating directly from the Sydney CBD by 2019.
The 105 Phillip Street project on behalf of the Department of Education has been completed and Phase one of the re locations has occurred.
Our team sought proposals from the private sector to deliver a new building with a requirement for 5,000sqm of office space in Liverpool. A preferred party was selected and capital expenditure was approved to relocate functions of the Department of Family and Community Services to the new building. The new building is scheduled to be delivered by the end of 2018 and will house around 350 staff.
Our team sought proposals from the private sector to deliver a new building for Government Accommodation with a requirement for 5,000sqm of office space in Penrith. The Government continues to explore opportunities for the relocation of Government agencies to Penrith.
