Yennora Distribution Park project management and environmental planning

Client:Stockland Commercial Property
Location:Sydney, NSW

Elton Consulting was engaged by Stockland Commercial Property to provide project management, planning and communications and engagement assistance for the Yennora Distribution Park, located in Sydney’s western suburbs.  Elton Consulting provided multidisciplinary consultancy services relating to obtaining development approval to increase freight rail movements to the site, responding to community concerns and environmental regulation of the site.

We worked closely with our client and their tenants to achieve a modification to their development consent, which enables more freight movements to the site while minimising the impact on the surrounding community.

The team has also assisted Stockland in the development and implementation of an environmental management plan which is anticipated to soon be endorsed by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment.

Key roles and responsibilities included:

  • Project management of an environmental audit team and a consultant undertaking an environmental management plan to regulate the site in accordance with the conditions of consent
  • Liaison with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment, the delegated party enforcing the conditions of consent
  • Responding to community and stakeholder issues.
