Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) has partnered with Frasers Property Australia and Hume Community Housing to transform the ageing 13.5 hectare site in Telopea into an integrated community with high quality housing, new community facilities, better transport links and improved access to health, education and jobs.
It is located close to Parramatta CBD, the future Parramatta Light Rail stop, and close to Western Sydney University (Rydalmere Campus) and parkland.
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) will publicly exhibit the concept plan for feedback in the coming months. The concept plan is designed to appeal to a diverse residential population, in an attractive setting, with excellent connections to transport, schools, employment and essential services.
The neighbourhood will be serviced by a new arrival plaza, shops, cafes, and a new multi-functional community centre.
New housing, transport and social infrastructure will support a growing and diverse community. Telopea’s natural setting will be complemented with upgraded parks positioned amongst its mature trees.
Telopea will be redeveloped in stages over the next 15 years or so.
Relocation of tenants started last year and is also taking place over stages. Department of Communities and Justice is working with each resident to understand their individual circumstances including health and social services, family connections, pets and other housing needs, to ensure an appropriate new home is offered. Tenants are given six months’ notice before they are required to move and all reasonable costs associated with moving are covered. Tenants will also be provided with the opportunity to return to new housing in the redeveloped Telopea neighbourhood if a suitable property is available.
