WHITE BAY POWER STATION
Power Station at Balmain, NSW

Completion: 2002 - 2003
Client: Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority

Conservation Management Plan


White Bay Power Station at Rozelle was built to supply electrical power to the Sydney railway and tramway system. It was operational between 1917-1983 and was the longest serving power station in metropolitan Sydney. Design 5 was engaged with a multi-disciplinary team to prepare a Conservation Management Plan (CMP) for this site. Other team members included Godden Mackay Logan Industrial Archaeologists, Hughes Trueman Consulting Engineers and JBA Urban Planning.

The CMP includes an extensive inventory and ranking of significance of built structures, spaces, elements and industrial equipment. The development guidelines are graphically illustrated with diagrams showing zones, spaces and elements of significance and options for development potential.

The White Bay Power Station Conservation Management Plan was awarded a National Trust of Australia (NSW) Heritage Award in 2004.
