The Epping project (242 - 244 Beecroft Road) will provide a new mixed-use development just minutes from the Epping Station and Epping town centre. The approved concept proposal includes new homes and non-residential uses which would allow for a combination of office, retail, cafe or medical spaces, which will be identified by the developer who develops the site in the future.
Landcom submitted a concept State Significant Development Application to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (the Department) in August 2019.
After receiving public submissions, Landcom prepared a Response to Submissions report which was submitted to the Department in November 2019. The Department asked for further information in December 2019, which Landcom responded to in April 2020. The Response to Submissions included amendments to the original concept proposal to address the feedback received.
The Minister for Planning and Public Spaces approved the proposal in July 2020.
