Berrys Bay Master Plan

Property NSW, now part of the Housing and Property Group within the NSW Department of Planning Industry and Environment, currently owns two sites on the Waverton Peninsula, 1 and 3a Balls Head Drive. These sites are valued by the community as an important part of the Sydney Harbour foreshore, with cultural and heritage significance.

While the Western Harbour Tunnel project led by Transport for NSW requires the temporary use of the Berrys Bay site for construction, the future use of the two sites will be informed by the community and key stakeholders in the development of the Berrys Bay Master Plan.

We understand that the sites may be needed for around five years as the tunnel is constructed, and the Master Plan will focus on the future use strategy once construction is completed.

To find out more, visit Western Harbour Tunnel.


We are in the early stages of the Berrys Bay project and are committed to engaging with the local community and stakeholders on the future of this site.

We encourage you to get involved and have your say as we work to deliver a quality space for the community to enjoy. To stay up to date on the project, join out project mailing list at the bottom of this page.

Community and Stakeholder Working Group (CSW Group)

Community and stakeholder representatives will help the department understand local public need now and for the future.

The CSW Group meets monthly to share information and ideas for the site, according to the Code of Conduct (PDF 169 KB) . Between meetings, CSW Group members liaise with their local community groups to share updates and gather community responses that can be fed back into the planning process. For more information, visit our Frequently asked questions.

The CSW Group commenced operations in November, 2020 following applications, via an expression of interest (PDF 128.4 KB) that closed on Friday November 6, 2020. Applications are being assessed against criteria set out in the CSW Group’s draft Terms of Reference (PDF 218 KB) and applicants will be advised in writing about the outcome of their application.

Early site investigations

You may see some workers on site over the coming months, as we start on technical studies to help us understand the sites.

The initial studies include surveying and environmental assessments. We are undertaking these studies to better understand the site and to inform the Master Planning process.
