Olympic Pool Redevelopment

A development application (DA) for the redevelopment of the North Sydney Olympic Pool is on exhibition for comment until 5pm on Friday 13 December. The proposed redevelopment upgrades the 50m pool and provides a range of facilities to meet a wide range of community needs.

The community can view all the documentation, including a flyover (also below), on the Council website through our DA tracking page. Search for DA 347/19 in the search field. Hard copies of the DA documentation are also available to view in Council’s Customer Service Centre.



Submissions on the development will be received up until 5pm on Friday 13 December 2019 and can be made online (through the DA tracking link above), via email (council@northsydney.nsw.gov.au) or in writing. The DA will be assessed by an independent planning consultant and reported to the Sydney North Planning Panel for determination.
