We are working to create an attractive and well-connected community, where people can live with good access to public transport, community facilities, jobs, open spaces, shops and cafes.


The development of Vineyard (Stage 1) precinct will include a proposed primary school, around 27 hectares of open space focused on the Killarney Chain of Ponds and adjacent land for new playing fields, parks and cycleways, a village centre and up to 2,300 new homes.


We are setting a maximum limit for the number of homes that can be built in the precinct to ensure future residents' needs are well balanced with the infrastructure and services. Key infrastructure includes local roads, drainage and open space, which will be delivered to support the growing community.


The Vineyard community will benefit from a central green spine along the Killarney Chain of Ponds providing recreational uses and extensive views to the Blue Mountains. The suburb also offers great connection to nearby rural land.


The precinct plan for Vineyard (Stage 1) has input from Hawkesbury City Council. The plans for Stage 1 have now been finalised and the area has been rezoned under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 (Growth Centres SEPP).


The main changes to the plans since exhibition include:

  • increasing the amount of open space by approximately four hectares to protect more Existing Native Vegetation and zoning it for conservation purposes
  • relocating two pocket parks for easier access
  • adjusting the road layout.

The rezoning of part of the Vineyard precinct will create a new community with shops, cafes and substantial green open space in Sydney's North West.
