The Department has now received a detailed development application for Stage 1 construction works for Ivanhoe Estate. In this application, NSW Land and Housing Commission (LAHC) is seeking approval to start construction on the site, including:

  • site preparation works, including tree removal and earthworks across the entire Ivanhoe Estate
  • the provision and augmentation of utilities and services infrastructure across the entire Ivanhoe Estate
  • the construction of the internal road network
  • the consolidation of the existing lots and subdivision of the Ivanhoe Estate to reflect the revised road layout, open space, and provide superblocks corresponding to the Masterplan
  • the construction and use of Buildings A1 and C1 in the north western corner of the Ivanhoe Estate, comprising approximately 740 dwellings (including 259 social dwellings) and a Childcare Centre within the ground level of Building A1.


Consultation and feedback

The Stage 1 application was on public exhibition until 19 June 2019.


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


Following exhibition for the Stage 1 application, the Department published all submissions received and asked NSW Land and Housing Commission (LAHC) to address any issues raised by the community, council and government agencies.


All submissions received and documents relating to the Stage 1 application are available to view on our Major Projects website.


In November 2019, LAHC submitted a formal Response to Submissions (RTS) report which is now publicly available.

Next steps

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


The Department will make a recommendation to the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces for his determination. Determination of the Stage 1 application however will not proceed ahead of the concept application.
