Hurstville City Centre Transport Management and Accessibility Plan
Georges River Council prepared the original Hurstville City Centre Transport Management and Accessibility Plan (TMAP) in June 2013 that informed the planning controls for the Hurstville City Centre LEP (Amendment No. 3 to HLEP 2012) in response to the vision for Hurstville as a major Centre for the South District. Since the TMAP was finalised in 2013, a number of changes to the planning controls and significant development occurred within the Hurstville City Centre; inconsistent with the original modelling. As the cumulative effect of these developments is greater than the sum of its parts, Council engaged the consultant GHD in September 2017 to update the TMAP building on work carried out for the original TMAP.

The key objectives of the Hurstville City Centre TMAP 2018 include:
  • modelling the current major development applications and planning proposals (as at 2018) and their implications for traffic management in the Hurstville City Centre;
  • modelling the Hurstville City Centre Urban Design Strategy (HCCUDS) recommendations and proposed changes to the development standards; and
  • identifying a package of transport measures which could help manage the future travel demand for the Hurstville City Centre.
The TMAP 2018 states that demand for travel is expected to increase in Hurstville, due to its status as a Strategic Centre and significant land use densification under the South District Plan 2018. Although Hurstville has good public transport links, it has a high car-based mode share.

The TMAP 2018 notes that overall, the proposed changes from the development applications, planning proposals and the HCCUDS are considered suitable within the context of Sydney’s growing population. Travel Demand Management (TDM - Encourage travel patterns that are tailored to the capacity of the network and help manage congestion with mobility pricing reform and demand management initiatives), enhanced active transport facilities and fast, efficient and reliable public transport services will be key to managing the additional demand and limiting the overall impact on the road network.

The TMAP 2018 proposes an Action Plan that details a range of suggested measures across 5 categories: Land Use, Road Network, Public Transport, Active Transport and Travel Demand Management.

At its meeting on 24 June 2019, Council considered the Hurstville City Centre TMAP 2018 and resolved:

a) That Council endorse the Hurstville City Centre Transport Management and Accessibility Plan 2018 as a strategic planning document, which will inform the preparation of development contributions plans, assessment of planning proposals / development applications and negotiations of Voluntary Planning Agreements.
b) That Council work with the transport authorities in relation to specific recommendations in the Hurstville City Centre Transport Management and Accessibility Plan 2018 Report.
c) That Council inform the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime Services of Council’s decision.
