Riverstone East is located in the Blacktown local government area, in the North West Growth Area.


The precinct is 656 hectares and is bounded by Schofields Road to the south, Windsor Road to the north east and First Ponds Creek to the west.

A new community for Riverstone East

The plans for Stages 1 and 2 were finalised in August 2016 and new planning controls were introduced to enable urban development. Refer below to Final Planning Package.


The new community in Riverstone East (Stages 1 and 2) will benefit from up to 3,500 new homes and the delivery of local amenities close to transport options, including:

  • a proposed primary school on Riverstone Road
  • a new community facility adjacent to the village centre on Guntawong Road
  • higher residential densities in proximity to the Tallawong Station on the Sydney Metro North West
  • access to essential infrastructure including water, sewer and electricity which is being progressively delivered.

Updates have also been made to the Riverstone and Tallawong Station (Area 20) Schedules within the Blacktown City Council Growth Centres Development Control Plan as a result of changes made to the riparian corridor mapping within the Riverstone Precinct, and zoning within the Tallawong Station Precinct.


For more information about zoning and current planning controls please contact Blacktown City Council on (02) 9839 6000.


Planning for Stage 3

As part of the exhibition of Stages 1 and 2, we received submissions on Stage 3. We will consider these submissions when we formally exhibit Stage 3. The timing of exhibition and rezoning of Stage 3 will align with the future delivery of water, sewer and electricity services.
