Marsden Park is part of the North West Priority Land Release Area


Marsden Park was rezoned under the Government’s Precinct Acceleration Protocol which allows planning and development to proceed earlier than proposed under the Government’s program, provided there is no additional cost to taxpayers.  

A new community for Marsden Park

Following extensive consultation, the draft plan was finalised in October 2013 and new planning controls were introduced to enable urban development. For more information please refer to the Planning Package below.


The new revitalised community at Marsden Park will benefit from up to 10,300 new homes and the delivery of local amenities close to transport options, including:

  • A new town centre and two village centres
  • 108 hectares of open space and recreation areas
  • upgrades to major roads including Richmond Road
  • new primary and high schools
  • protection of more than 450 hectares of significant vegetation and major creek corridors
  • improved connections to encourage walking and cycling

The new neighbourhood will also help create jobs for local people. It is anticipated that Marsden Park will provide up to 3,000 new jobs, including 1,300 in the new town centre.

Updates and changes

Minor changes were made to some of the planning controls in Marsden Park in November 2013.
