The final master plan for Telopea was endorsed by City of Parramatta Council in March 2017. The NSW Government has now released the rezoning proposal for the Telopea Priority 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. View the press release

The Telopea Priority Precinct 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.

DPE has placed the proposal on public exhibition for six weeks from Friday 13 October until Friday 24 November 2017.

The Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) and DPE will be holding a number of information sessions about the proposal and encourage local residents and the wider community to attend these sessions and provide feedback to DPE.

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.
