Frequently Asked Questions

A concept State Significant Development (SSD) application first sets the parameters for acceptable size, height, and use of the proposed buildings. If a concept design is approved, the applicant will then seek separate consent for detailed designs and construction works.


The next stage would involve a new application to be lodged, exhibited, and assessed separately to the concept design. 

Landcom (on behalf of Sydney Metro) is seeking the concept SSD approval for Tallawong Station Precinct South.

Landcom is seeking concept approval for a mixed-use precinct, which includes:

  • maximum building envelopes for up to 16 buildings, including building heights up to 8 storeys, street-walls and setbacks 
  • allocation of approximately 85,000m² residential and 9,000m² non-residential gross floor area
  • an indicative residential yield of 1,100 dwellings, including affordable housing
  • road layouts 
  • landscape concept for public and private domain, including a 3,411m² village park 
  • allocation of car parking and bicycle parking rates

The Precinct would be located south of the approved Tallawong Station (formerly known as Cudgegong Road Station), and provide the opportunity for transit-oriented development adjacent to the Sydney Metro North West Rail Link.


The Precinct is also part of the North West Priority Growth Area, which is intended to provide substantial land release areas for homes and jobs in Sydney’s northwest.

Now the concept SSD application is approved, separate applications will be required for the detailed design and construction of the development.
