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.

Better access to employment
More quality housing within walking distance to the new light rail network. Telopea will become a more attractive place for people to live, with better access to employment, education, shops and high quality housing for all residents.
New and improved infrastructure
Better community facilities, parks, shops and infrastructure. New development in Telopea will be supported by new and improved infrastructure, including upgrades to parks, roads and community spaces.
Better designed housing
Ongoing engagement with social housing residents. No relocations will occur before mid-2018. All tenants will have the opportunity to return to Telopea. The renewal of Telopea will result in more social housing, but it will be better designed and fully integrated with the local community.
A mix of social housing
Social housing will be better integrated with the community, with the redevelopment of existing social housing for a mix of social, affordable and private housing.
