The NSW Government plans to continue its transformation of land at the heart of Rosemeadow, lodging a development application with Campbelltown City Council to build 45 seniors living units within its new Stage 3 residential subdivision on Copperfield Drive.
Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey said the latest stage included construction of around 100 new vacant residential lots for future market sale as well as the new Seniors Living complex delivering 45 new social apartments right next to Rosemeadow Marketplace.
The $35 million redevelopment will also create approximately 175 jobs while delivering much needed modern housing that’s better suited for its local environment.
“It’s an excellent example of how we’re replacing 50 year-old housing that’s no longer fit for purpose with a modern master-planned community that better meets both the diverse needs of our senior tenants, as well as the private housing market,” Mrs Pavey said.
Stage 3 is the final stage of a small-scale neighbourhood renewal project in Rosemeadow, which has already delivered 28 social housing dwellings and 61 private homes since 2016. Around 280 new residents will be accommodated as part of this project stage, with opportunities for first homebuyers to be created through the sale of new vacant land lots.
Construction of the Stage 3 subdivision is expected to commence in the coming months while construction of the new Seniors Living complex will begin later next year, following completion of the land subdivision works.
Mrs Pavey said the modern three-storey building will largely be accessible for senior tenants with mobility issues, with lifts to upper floors, integrated ramps to communal open spaces and 20 per cent of parking spaces designated as accessible.
“The vast majority of the new homes in this 45-unit complex will benefit from natural cross-ventilation, with all units fitted with ceiling fans to reduce cooling costs, and there’s plenty of space for deep-soil planting to grow some lovely large trees for shading,” Mrs Pavey said.
“We’re building stronger and safer communities by getting shovels in the ground faster and creating vital jobs in construction and across the wider NSW economy, while delivering fantastic new homes for disadvantaged and vulnerable people.”
The site is located south of the Campbelltown CBD, adjacent to the Rosemeadow Marketplace shopping centre, local schools, childcare and a regional sporting complex.
