Alex Avenue is located in the Blacktown City Council local government area, in the North West Growth Area.


The precinct is 420 hectares and is bounded by Burdekin Road to the south, Schofields Road to the north, the Richmond Rail line to the west and the Second Ponds Creek release area to the east.

A new community for Alex Avenue

Following extensive consultation, the plan was finalised in May 2010 and new planning controls were introduced to enable urban development. Refer below to the Final Planning Package (May 2010) for more information.


The new revitalised community at Alex Avenue will benefit from up to 6,300 new homes and the delivery of local amenities close to transport options, including:

  • two new schools with adjoining playing fields
  • a new railway station at Schofields with a commuter car park
  • at least 25,000 square metres of retail space
  • access to the duplicated Richmond Rail line
  • upgrades to Hambledon, Burdekin and Schofields Roads, including new rail crossings at Burdekin and Schofields Roads
  • improved connections to encourage walking and cycling.

The new neighbourhood will also help create local jobs for people living in the area.

The amended State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 and maps are available on the NSW legislation website.

Transport corridor overlay 2015

We have been working closely with Blacktown City Council and Transport for NSW to preserve a transport corridor through the Riverstone and Alex Avenue priority precincts.

Following consultation in August 2015, the transport corridor extension from the Sydney Metro Northwest has now been included in the relevant land zoning maps under State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006. This means that all development applications within the corridor will need to be referred to Transport for NSW by Blacktown City Council.
