    1 Introduction

    Ason Group has been engaged by Pacific Planning to prepare a Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) report

    to support a planning proposal gateway submission in relation to the Land located between Parramatta

    Road, Victoria Street, Albert Street and the Western Railway line, Granville, with a view to amend the

    Parramatta Local Environmental Plan 2011 (PLEP 2011).

    This report has been prepared to provide a high-level assessment of the traffic and transport implications

    of the proposal. The assessment undertaken thus far, takes into consideration the planning context and

    objectives for the Site and locality.

    As part of the submission, this report seeks to address the following key matters required by the

    Parramatta Road Corridor Urban Transportation Strategy Precinct Transport Report. A summary of the

    requirements and relevant sections of this report as summarised in Table 1.

    Assess the traffic generating qualities of the proposal(s) Section 5.1

    Consider existing and committed transport provision and its capacity to support the proposal(s)

    Section 5.2

    Identify mitigation measures to address transport impacts of the proposal(s).

    Section 3.2

    1.1 Overview of Proposal

    The intended outcome of the proposal is to amend the permitted land use applicable to the Site under

    PLEP 2011 to achieve the following development scenarios:

    ▪ A mix of retail/commercial land uses on the first floor, residential units at the upper floors and

    basement car parking.

    ▪ Amendment of the zoning of the land within the Site from R3 – Medium Density Residential and B6

    – Enterprise Corridor to B4 – Mixed Use.
