Olympic Pool Redevelopment

The development application (DA) for the redevelopment of the North Sydney Olympic Pool has been lodged.

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), 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.

The DA will be assessed by an independent planning consultant and reported to the Sydney North Planning Panel for determination.
