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.


In June 2019, LAHC lodged a Response to Submissions report (RTS) for the concept design application. This report addressed issues raised by the community, council and government agencies during the Environmental Impact Statement public exhibition period which ended in May 2018.


Following feedback received during public exhibition of the RTS, LAHC is now proposing changes to the concept proposal.


Changes to the concept proposal in the RTS include:

  • Increased height to Building C3 from 45m to 55m plus increased height to part of Building C4 from 45m to 55m and reduction in part of the same building from 65m to 55m
  • Total gross floor area reduced from 278,000 to 268,000m2
  • Total number of new dwellings reduced from 3,400 to 3,300
  • Minimum building setbacks to Epping Road increased from 12m/24m to 17.8m/43.6m
  • New left in access road from Epping Road deleted to retain more trees and prevent fragmentation of the ecological corridor
  • Impact on the Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest reduced to 0.05 hectares from 0.28 hectares
  • Retention of 442 trees (increased from 350 trees). 


Consultation and feedback

A revised Response to Submissions report for the Ivanhoe Estate concept design was on public exhibition until 11 December 2019.


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


All documents relating to the concept design application, including the RTS and revised RTS, are available to view on our Major Projects website.


Next steps

Following the exhibition of the revised RTS for the concept design, the Department will publish all submissions received.  


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 and Public Spaces for his determination.
