The final master plan for Telopea was endorsed by City of Parramatta Council in March 2017. The NSW Government has now released the proposal for rezoning of Stage One of the Telopea Planned Precinct which will transform Telopea with a vibrant town centre and new social, affordable and private homes.

NSW Department of Family and Community Services and the City of Parramatta are now working closely with the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) to implement the master plan via a rezoning proposal for Telopea.

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.

Feedback from residents, the community and other stakeholders during community consultation in 2016 has helped to inform the master plan. The proposal was placed on exhibition for six weeks, from 13 October until 24 November 2017. During this time DPE held a number of information sessions.

The Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) provided support to DPE at these events, as well as holding two events specifically for social housing residents. Over 200 residents attended the sessions, and provided important feedback to the project team. DPE is now in the process of reviewing all feedback and submissions and will prepare a report in the coming months.

It is important to remember that:

  • The redevelopment of Telopea will occur in stages over a 10 to 15 year period which means that many social housing residents will not have to move for many years.
  • Residents will not be relocated before the middle of 2018 as it has not yet been decided which areas of Telopea will be redeveloped first.
  • Many social housing residents will have the opportunity to move from their current homes into newly built homes in Telopea.
  • Residents who are required to relocate out of Telopea will be given the opportunity to return to Telopea if they wish.
