About Hills Showground Project
Close to Cattai Creek and historic Castle Hill Showground, the Hills Showground Project will provide housing and open spaces for communities. Landcom is in the early planning phases for the Hills Showground Project and are looking at opportunities to deliver a vibrant local centre, new open spaces 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 dwellings and 10,000m2 of retail, commercial and spaces for community use. The focus at Showground has been the unique location of the site close to a significant riparian corridor and adjacent to the culturally significant community venue of Castle Hill Showground.
Community and stakeholder consultation was undertaken in September 2019 which informed the development of our draft concept proposal. You can read about our draft concept masterplan here.
Following pubic exhibition of the draft concept masterplan in November 2019, Landcom is preparing a detailed Response to Submissions report. The report which will provide an updated plan which responds to the public submissions in mid 2020 for the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. It is expected that the Department will provide a determination on the proposal in the second half of 2020.
