Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey, has announced that Frasers Property and Hume Community Housing are the successful proponents to transform the ageing 13 hectare Telopea site into an integrated community with high quality housing, new community facilities, better transport links and improved access to health, education and jobs.
The Masterplan will 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 15 plus 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.
