Site investigations

Sydneysiders make up close to two-thirds of the State's inmate population. With the growth in the number of inmates, it's clear that additional beds will be required at sites within metropolitan NSW.

As a first step, we are working to increase capacity at a number of metropolitan correctional complexes, including John Morony, Parklea and Silverwater. We have also repurposed existing sites at Lidcombe and Unanderra.

Sites

West Dapto Road, Kembla Grange

In 2018, CSNSW conducted a detailed site investigation at Kembla Grange. This investigation found that the site should be excluded as a potential location for a correctional centre.
