The Cherrybrook Station Precinct is centred around Cherrybrook Station on the Sydney Metro Northwest, delivering a direct connection with the Castle Hill, Norwest and Chatswood business and entertainment districts.


The station precinct government land has the potential to become a vibrant local town centre with shops and services, quality public domain and open space, community facilities, amenities and a range of housing while protecting Cherrybrook’s existing neighbourhood character.


Two separate, but related, planning processes are under way in the precinct.


You can view a map of the Cherrybrook Station Government Land State Significant Precinct and Cherrybrook Station Precinct [PNG, 14.9MB].


Cherrybrook Station Government Land State Significant Precinct (SSP)

The Cherrybrook Station state-led rezoning covers 7.7 hectares of government-owned land next to the metro station.


Landcom is preparing a rezoning proposal on behalf of the landowner Sydney Metro through the State Significant Precinct (SSP) process.


The rezoning will facilitate a new mixed-use local centre to support the metro station and the needs of the community.


The department is working with Landcom as well as Hornsby Shire and The Hills Shire Councils, Transport for NSW, Sydney Metro and other agencies to progress planning for the Cherrybrook Station State Significant Precinct.


Landcom has received a broad range of feedback from the community and other stakeholders while preparing the rezoning proposal. Based on this feedback, Landcom has refined its rezoning package and submitted it to the department. The community will have further opportunity to provide feedback when the rezoning proposal is exhibited.


Cherrybrook Station Precinct

The Cherrybrook Place Strategy will cover the broader precinct around Cherrybrook Station, as outlined in the 2013 Cherrybrook Station Structure Plan.


The department is preparing the place strategy, which will provide further detail to guide the planning, infrastructure needs and implementation of the 2013 Structure Plan. The place strategy will then inform future rezoning proposals for the private land in the broader precinct, whether Council or privately led.


The community will be able to have its say on the draft place strategy when it goes on exhibition.


Any proposed rezoning of private land in the broader precinct would also require further consultation with the community.


Planning for the Cherrybrook Station Precinct builds on a significant body of planning for the area. This includes the North West Rail Link Corridor Strategy, Cherrybrook Station Structure Plan and North West Rail Link Corridor Strategy – Issues Paper.


What happens next

The Cherrybrook Station Government Land SSP rezoning proposal and the Cherrybrook Place Strategy will be exhibited concurrently in mid 2022. The community will be able to provide feedback on both of these plans to help shape the future of Cherrybrook.
