A new community for Schofields

The Schofields Precinct was rezoned in May 2012 and new planning controls were introduced to enable urban development.

For more information please refer to the 'Final planning package – May 2012' below.

The new community at Schofields will benefit from up to 2,950 new homes and the delivery of local amenities close to transport options, including:

  • 61 ha of conservation land, focused along Eastern Creek
  • 31 ha of open space and recreation areas
  • retail space in three neighbourhood centres
  • a potential public transport corridor linking Schofields station to Rouse Hill
  • upgrades to key roads
  • improved connections to encourage walking and cycling, and the new neighbourhood will also help create new jobs for local people.
