The Showground Station Precinct Proposal was made available for community consultation from 7 December 2015 to 28 February 2016. The draft proposal was developed with the vision to create “The Hills' Cultural and Innovation Precinct”.
The precinct will be a more attractive place to live with new public spaces including a new town square opposite the station, open space and neighbourhood parks, and more accessible natural spaces adjoining Cattai Creek.
The draft plan includes:
The Showground Station Precinct is part of the Sydney Metro Northwest Priority Urban Renewal Corridor, which aims to create new centres around the Sydney Metro Northwest stations which will be great places to work, live and play.

The exhibition period has now closed, however you can still view the material:
As part of the Precinct Support Scheme, up to $5 million has been allocated to improving local infrastructure around the Showground Station precinct.
An online survey was conducted throughout April and early May 2016 to get community feedback about how the council can use this money to improve the areas around the station. Results of the survey will be made public in late May 2016.
The submissions received in response to the draft proposal can be viewed online at Showground precinct submissions.
The submissions received during the exhibition period will be assessed by the planning team and where appropriate, details in the plan may be amended. There may be a further exhibition if major changes are proposed.
The plan will then be finalised, and a recommendation will be prepared for the Minister for Planning to determine.
