​​​​Outer Metropolitan Multi-Purpose Correctional Centre

The NSW Government has approved Corrective Services NSW (CSNSW) to proceed with the planning and design to repurpose the Outer Metropolitan Multi-Purpose Correctional Centre (OMMPCC). The project will be delivered by the Department of Justice’s Justice Infrastructure and Assets branch on behalf of CSNSW.

A Review of Environmental Factors (REF) will be carried out shortly. The REF examines the likely environmental and social impacts of the proposed expansion and the measures required to mitigate any adverse impacts.

Repurposing OMMPCC would see the following:

Upgrade of the centre’s classification from minimum to medium security;

  • 100 medium-security beds across two accommodation blocks;
  • 150 minimum-security beds across three accommodation blocks; and
  • Upgrades to the gatehouse, reception, administration building, and visits area.

Repurposing the OMMPCC is part of a $3.8 billion infrastructure plan to accommodate the state’s rising prison population. The project will deliver a fit-for-purpose facility for holistic end-to-end management of inmates, as well as providing a safer environment for correctional staff and inmates.
