About the Epping Project
240 - 244 Beecroft Road, Epping was acquired by Transport for NSW (now Sydney Metro) in 2012 for construction of the Sydney Metro Northwest tunnel and services facility. Now that construction of the Sydney Metro Northwest is complete, the remainder of the site (242-244 Beecroft Rd) can be developed into housing. This is consistent with existing zoning of the site for residential uses.
Building on earlier consultation with stakeholders, including a doorknock of neighbours in November 2017, Landcom has further consulted with City of Parramatta Council, Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, the community and other key stakeholders to finalise concept plans for this site.
Landcom submitted a concept State Significant Development Application to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for the site in August 2019. After receiving public submissions on the proposal, Landcom prepared a Response to Submissions (RtS) report which was submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in December 2019. The RtS included some amendments to the original plan based on submissions received. The Department is reviewing the report and it is expected that a determination will be made in mid 2020.
In the future, the site will be sold to a developer through a competitive market tender managed by an independent sales agent. Subscribe for updates.
Community and other stakeholder engagement
Landcom's undertook community and stakeholder consultation to inform the development of the concept plans for the Epping site. Public submissions on the concept plan were addressed in the Response to Submissions report which was submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for review in December 2019.
