Schofields is located in the Blacktown Local Government Area, in the North West Priority Growth Area.

 

The precinct is 465 hectares and is bounded by Eastern Creek to the north and west, Quakers Hill Parkway to the south and the Richmond Railway line to the east.

 

A new community for Schofields

Following extensive consultation, the draft plan was finalised in May 2012 and new planning controls were introduced to enable urban development. For more information please refer to the Final Planning Package (May 2012) below.

 

The new revitalised community at Schofields will benefit from up to 2,950 new homes and the delivery of local amenities close to transport options, including:

  • 61 hectares of conservation land, focused along Eastern Creek
  • 31 hectares of open space and recreation areas
  • retail space in three neighbourhood centres
  • a potential public transport corridor linking Schofields station to Rouse Hill
  • upgrades to key roads
  • improved connections to encourage walking and cycling

 

The new neighbourhood will also help create new jobs for local people.

 

Updates and changes

Minor changes were made to some of the planning controls in Schofields in March 2013.
