The master plan aims to transform Telopea into a vibrant neighbourhood that will appeal to a diverse residential population. People will choose to live here because of its attractive setting and connections to transport, schools, employment and essential services. The neighbourhood will be serviced by a new arrival plaza, shops, cafes, improved parks and a new multi-functional community centre, with new convenient connections to help navigate the topography. New housing, transport and social infrastructure will support a growing and more diverse community. Telopea’s natural setting will be complemented with upgraded parks positioned amongst its mature trees. Telopea will be a desirable place to live, socialise and take part in daily urban life.

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.
