The concept proposal for Ivanhoe Estate was lodged by NSW Land and Housing Commission (LAHC) in 2017 and the Department welcomed public feedback during public exhibition in April-May 2018.


LAHC has now lodged a response to submissions report (RTS) for the concept design application. This report addresses issues raised by the community, council and government agencies during the Environmental Impact Statement public exhibition period which ended in May 2018.


Changes to the proposal in the RTS include:

  • Deletion of Building C2
  • Expansion of the Village Green to create a new subterranean community centre and provision of 2,900 m2 of additional public open space
  • Increased heights to buildings B3, C4, D2 and D4
  • Reduced heights to buildings A2, B1.1 and C3
  • Revised building setbacks
  • Total gross floor area reduced by 5,500 m2
  • Retention of 119 additional trees and improved interface with the Shrimptons Creek riparian corridor.

All documents relating to the concept design application, including the RTS, are available to view on the Department’s Major Projects website.


The RTS was on public exhibition until 19 June 2019.


The Department welcomed feedback from the community, government agencies and other stakeholders during public exhibition. This will feedback help us better understand the opinions and concerns of the community, which informs our assessment of the project.


Next steps

Now exhibition of the RTS for the concept design has closed, the Department will soon publish all submissions received and ask NSW Land and Housing Commission (LAHC) to address any issues raised by the community, council and government agencies.


LAHC will prepare a further Response to Submissions (RTS) report, which we will make publicly available.


The Department will then assess the merits of the project, which includes consideration of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), all submissions and community feedback, and the RTS.


The Department will then make a recommendation to the Minister for Planning for his determination.
