The first stage of redevelopment at Riverwood (Washington Park) is nearing completion and has delivered social housing mixed with private housing in a model that has created a better place for all residents.

The redevelopment of Riverwood North has demonstrated what can be achieved through redeveloping concentrated social housing estates into a diverse community offering inspiration and opportunity.

The remaining 30 hectares of Riverwood renewal will be planned and considered as a State Significant Precinct (SSP). The redevelopment project has a potential investment of $3.4 billion to the state economy and the creation of 500 construction jobs.

In being declared an SSP, a specific process is followed that involves a detailed study of the area to identify requirements for all types of housing, community amenity and services needed for the local population.

FACS will continue consulting with residents, the broader community and other stakeholders to identify what additional infrastructure and amenity is required to support the new population in further improving Riverwood.

There has been much consultation and planning work done in the last 12 months to develop a SSP Study and Planning Framework for the area.

With the approval of the Minister for Planning, a finalised Planning Framework allowing for the submission of development applications is likely in 2019.
