About the Epping Project

240 - 244 Beecroft Road, Epping was acquired by Transport for NSW (now Sydney Metro) in 2012 for construction of the Metro North West Link tunnel and service facility. Now that construction of the Metro North West Link is complete, the remainder of the site will 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 further consulted with City of Parramatta Council, Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, the community and other key stakeholders to finalise concept plans for the site.

Landcom submitted a concept State Significant Development Application (SSDA) 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 report which was submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in November 2019. The Department asked for further information in December 2019 and we responded in April 2020.The Response to Submissions included amendments to the original plan based on feedback received through the exhibition process. The Minister for Planning and Public Spaces reviewed the revised proposal and approved the concept SSDA in July 2020.

The concept approval enables further detailed planning to be undertaken for new mixed-use development on the site, including:

  • residential gross floor area of up to 37,700m2
  • non-residential floor area, which may include offices, cafes, shops and medical centres, of between 750 – 1,000m2
  • minimum 5% of dwellings will be Affordable Housing
  • basement car parking, motorcycle parking, bicycle parking and service vehicle spaces.

In the future, the site will be sold to a developer through a competitive market tender managed by an independent sales agent.

Landcom will work with the future developer to promote design excellence, and sustainability and community outcomes in accordance with the concept approval.
