The final masterplan 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 masterplan 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.

Following the completion of the Expression of Interest phase, NSW Minister for Social Housing, the Hon. Pru Goward MP announced the successful shortlist for Telopea:

  • Citta Property Group Pty Limited & Qualitas Property Partners Pty Limited/ Community Housing Limited & Bridge Housing Limited

  • Frasers Property AHL Limited/ Hume Community Housing & St George Community Housing Limited

  • Payce Consolidated Limited/ Evolve Housing Limited.

The Request for Proposals has now been released to shortlisted parties. Contracts will be awarded in the first half of 2019.

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 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.
