The proposal is identified as State Significant Development (SSD) as it is associated with rail infrastructure and has a Capital Investment Value of more than $30 million.


Landcom (on behalf of Sydney Metro) has submitted a concept SSD application for the Tallawong Station Precinct South, which is the first stage in the development assessment process, and sets parameters for future size, height and use of the proposal. 


Now the concept is approved, separate applications will be lodged and assessed for detailed design and construction of the development.


State Significant Development assessment process:

  • The applicant, Landcom, lodges an application and supporting documentation to the Department of Planning and Environment.
  • The Department prepares the Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs), which outlines issues the applicant needs to address.
  • The applicant prepares and lodges an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to address the SEARs.
  • The Department publicly exhibits the EIS and consults with local councils, government agencies, other key stakeholders and the community.
  • The Department publishes submissions and asks the applicant to address any concerns or issues raised by the community, council and government agencies.
  • The applicant prepares a formal Response to Submissions (RtS) report, which the Department makes publicly available.
  • The Department assesses the merits of the proposal, including consideration of the EIS, all submissions and community feedback, and the RtS, and makes a recommendation to the Minister for Planning for determination.
  • The Department then notifies the applicant, relevant government agencies and councils on the outcome.
