What’s happening

We’re partnering with Frasers Property Australia and Hume Community Housing to build high-quality housing in Telopea with good access to transport, health and education facilities, and jobs.

The new community will be close to the Parramatta CBD, the future Parramatta Light Rail stop, and Western Sydney University (Parramatta South campus), and also have easy access to extensive parkland.

Planning process

We exhibited our concept plan and development application for Telopea between October and November 2021.

The concept plan shows the general form and layout of the development, including the overall floor area of proposed buildings, how the development will be staged, and associated public infrastructure upgrades. The development application is for the area immediately next to the proposed light rail station (known as Stage 1A) and seeks approval to begin construction on 443 apartments across 5 buildings, ranging from 4 to 14 storeys.

Find out more about the concept plan and development application.

Tenant relocations

Telopea will be redeveloped in stages over the next 15 years or so.

Relocation of social housing tenants is also taking place in stages. If you are a social housing tenant, the Department of Communities and Justice will work with you to find a new home that meets your needs.

We will give you 6 months’ notice before you must move and we will cover all reasonable costs associated with moving. If a suitable property is available, you will have the opportunity to return to new housing in the redeveloped Telopea neighbourhood once its completed.
