About Hills Showground Project
Close to Cattai Creek and historic Castle Hill Showground, the Hills Showground Project will provide housing, services and open spaces for local communities. Landcom is in the planning phase of the project and is looking at opportunities to deliver a vibrant local centre, new open space and a mix of housing choices to meet the needs of people at different life stages.
The project will have three distinct precincts: Doran Drive, Hills Showground East (closest to Showground Road) and Hills Showground West (next to the commuter carpark). In total, the project has potential for an estimated 1,620 homes and around 14,000m2 for retail, commercial and community uses. The focus at Hills Showground is the unique location of the site close to a significant creek corridor and the culturally significant Castle Hill Showground.
Community and stakeholder consultation was undertaken in September 2019, which informed the development of our draft concept proposal.
Following public exhibition of the concept proposal in late 2019, Landcom prepared a detailed Response to Submissions package. The package includes an updated concept proposal, which responds to stakeholder submissions.
The package was submitted to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in September 2020. It is expected that the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces will provide a decision on the State Significant Development Application in late 2020.
You can view the updated concept proposal, the submissions and our response on the Department of Planning, Infrastructure and Environment's Major Projects website.

Community and other stakeholder engagement
While preparing our draft concept proposal, we held a community engagement session in the old Hills Shire Council Administration building on Saturday 28 September 2019.
Subject to approval of our concept State Significant Development Application, the community will have more opportunities to comment on future development. Developers will submit detailed design Development Applications for construction of buildings and public areas, which will comply with the approved concept proposal.
