Development Application lodged



Indicative land area:

13.5 Ha

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.

Planning process

In October and November 2021, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) exhibited a concept plan and development application for the site.

The concept plan seeks approval for the site's overall proposed building gross floor area, development staging and public infrastructure upgrades. The development application covers the area immediately adjacent to the proposed light rail station (known as Stage 1A) and seeks approval to begin construction on 443 apartments across five buildings ranging from 4-14 storeys.

Tenant relocations

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

Relocation of tenants is taking place over stages. The 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.
