​Mar​y Wade Correctional Centre​

The Juniperina Juvenile Justice Centre at Lidcombe NSW was transferred to Corrective Services NSW (CSNSW) on 1st July 2016 and gazetted under the name Mary Wade Correctional Centre in September 2016. The existing facility will be repurposed as a maximum security remand centre for up to 94 female inmates. ​

The repurposing activities associated with the proposal are to be undertaken within the boundary of the existing correctional complex.

NSW Department of Justice engaged Public Works Advisory to carry out community and stakeholder consultation during the development of the Review of Environmental Factors (REF). 

Public​​ comment and feedback for the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) took place between October 10 and October 31, 2016. The REF for Mary Wade Correctional Centre was completed in March 2017.


Copies of the REF are available via phoning our Stakeholder Engagement Team on 1800 875 345 or by emailing newprisons@justice.nsw.gov.au
