Riverstone East is located in the Blacktown local government area, in the North West Priority Growth Area.
The precinct is 656 hectares and is bounded by Schofields Road to the south, Windsor Road to the north east and First Ponds Creek to the west.
Following extensive consultation, the plans for Stages 1 and 2 were finalised in August 2016 and new planning controls were introduced to enable urban development. Refer below to Final Planning Package.
The new community in Riverstone East (Stages 1 and 2) will benefit from up to 3,500 new homes and the delivery of local amenities close to transport options, including:
Updates have also been made to the Riverstone and Cudgegong Road Station (Area 20) Schedules within the Blacktown City Council Growth Centres Development Control Plan as a result of changes made to the riparian corridor mapping within the Riverstone Precinct, and zoning within the Cudgegong Road Station (Area 20) Precinct. A copy of the documents is available below.
You can also view the submissions and exhibited documents.
For more information about zoning and current planning controls please contact Blacktown City Council on (02) 9839 6000.
As part of the planning process for the precinct we have consulted on a draft Indicative Layout Plan for Stage 3.
Will will undertake further work and consider all of the submission received when land in Stage 3 is ready to be rezoned. The timing of rezoning will align with the future delivery of water, sewer and electricity services. Further consultation will be undertaken with landowners in Stage 3 when the timing of service delivery is known.
The amended State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 and maps are available on the NSW legislation website.
Community input is an important part of the planning process. We consulted with stakeholders, landowners and the community at various stages of the process leading up to and including public exhibition. The draft Plan for stages 1 and 2 was exhibited for public comment and closed on 18 September 2015.
Landowner workshops held in June 2014 provided an update of the work completed to date and an important opportunity for the Department to hear from local people about what they want the area to look like in the future. For more information, refer to The Presentation, Discussion Paper and workshop feedback.
Two information sessions were held in November 2013 for landowners in the precinct. The sessions were an opportunity for landowners to better understand the Precinct Planning process, meet the staff and ask questions. A copy of the presentation is available.
