The final master plan for Telopea was endorsed by City of Parramatta Council in March 2017.  In October and November 2017, the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) exhibited the Telopea Planned Precinct Rezoning Proposal.

Feedback is currently being taken into consideration by DPE and it is anticipated that a final determination will be made in the coming months.

The Telopea Planned Precinct Stage One Rezoning Proposal seeks to rezone the land within the master plan area by setting out new planning controls including land use zones, building height and density controls. The proposal also includes plans for improved open spaces, a new community centre and a potential town centre near the light-rail stop.

On 29 March 2018, the NSW Minister for Social Housing, the Hon. Pru Goward MP, announced the commencement of engagement with the market through an Expression of Interest (EOI) to start the process of finding a private sector and/or not-for-profit organisations to work with for the redevelopment of Telopea.

View the Telopea EOI eTendering link for more information.

Telopea will not be redeveloped all at once, but in a number of stages over the next 10-15 years. It is important to remember that our ongoing commitments to:

  • Ensure residents are given 6 months’ notice before they are required to relocate
  • Provide residents with the opportunity to return to new housing in the redeveloped Telopea neighbourhood should they wish
  • Work with each resident to understand their circumstances, including health and social services, family connections, pets and other housing needs
  • Cover all reasonable costs associated with the relocation process.
