Marsden Park North, a new development precinct for Sydney’s North West, will become a thriving new community under a NSW Government Masterplan.
The draft Marsden Park North Masterplan that goes on exhibition today will guide development for the community, including 6,200 new homes over the next 20 years.
Minister for Planning and Housing, Anthony Roberts, said the highlights of the masterplan were the provision of three new local centres, a new primary school and new pedestrian paths and cycleways to access environmental conservation areas, new playing fields and open space.
“Three new local centres throughout the Marsden Park North precinct, along with the commercial area along Richmond Road, will provide the community with shops, cafes, community facilities and local jobs,” Mr Roberts said.
“Residents will benefit from thirteen brand new playing fields and more useable open space proposed for the area.
“The new playing fields, public parks and the local centres will be easily accessible via new pathways and cycleways”.
Mr Roberts said a wide range of homes would be provided for the diverse and growing community, easily accessed by new road upgrades and the Sydney Metro Northwest.
Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly, said: “Access to and from the area will be made easy with the upgrade of Richmond Road, Garfield Road, Schofields Road and Bandon Road.
“Residents will also have access to the new Sydney Metro Northwest at Tallawong Station as well as existing Schofields and Riverstone Railway Stations.
“The new development precinct will eventually become part of the proposed new suburbs of Angus, Marsden Park and Vineyard”.
The draft masterplan and the supporting technical reports are on exhibition for the local community to have their say in shaping the future of their area until Friday 26 October 2018.
The community is encouraged to have a say on the plan. For more information, visit www.planning.nsw.gov.au/marsdenparknorth
