Riverstone is part of the North West Priority Land Release Area.
Following extensive consultation, the draft plan was finalised in May 2010 and new planning controls were introduced to enable urban development. For more information please refer to the documents at the end of this page.
We have been working closely with Blacktown City Council and Transport for NSW to preserve a transport corridor through 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.
For more information please refer to the Finalisation Report.
The changes can be viewed online at www.legislation.nsw.gov.au.
Minor changes were also made to some of the planning controls in Riverstone in January 2012 and again in March 2015. This included rezoning land formerly identified for a school site, located on Boundary Road, to low density residential.
The changes can be viewed at www.legislation.nsw.gov.au.
