Frequently asked questions

What is the update to the new open spaces coming to Kellyville?

The approved concept includes approximately 29,500m2 of open space. Landcom will deliver a neighbourhood park, open space alongside Elizabeth Macarthur Creek, and a multi-use sport and recreation space.

Consultation for the new open spaces was undertaken from December 2023 until February 2024. This feedback is now being considered as part of the detailed design process. As part of this process, Landcom are consulting with The Hills Shire Council and other state authorities before lodging development applications later in 2024 with Council for public exhibition and assessment.  The development applications will provide detailed designs for these open spaces.

How will traffic and transport be managed?

The approved concept identifies road upgrades to help manage traffic. These road improvements will be delivered in stages.

The concept encourages sustainable transport by providing new homes close to the metro, reducing people’s reliance on private cars. The concept includes shared walking and cycling paths along Elizabeth Macarthur Creek. A proposed vehicle bridge and pedestrian footbridge over Elizabeth Macarthur Creek will improve east west connectivity.

Proposed car parking rates for residential buildings will encourage people to use public transport instead of driving their car.

What open spaces are included?

Kellyville will be an exciting and lively place benefitting from new outdoor living areas including new open space, local parks, walking and cycling paths and strong connections to the natural environment at Elizabeth Macarthur Creek.

The approved concept includes approximately 29,500m2 of open space.

Landcom will deliver a neighbourhood park, open space alongside Elizabeth Macarthur Creek, and a multi-use sport and recreation space.

These areas will provide opportunity for quiet recreation, exercise and sporting activities.

How will design quality be achieved?

Landcom is committed to delivering great places for the people of NSW. The approved concept provides a Design Excellence Framework to guide good design. We will work with Sydney Metro, the appointed development partners, Government Architect of NSW, The Hills Shire Council and the Department of Planning and Environment to promote high quality design.

In addition, the approved concept is supported by the Kellyville Station Precinct Design Guidelines which outline the objectives and provisions which will guide future developers when preparing detailed development applications for sites. These two strategies will contribute to maintaining design excellence through the development of the Kellyville precinct.

You can find the Design Excellence Framework and Design Guidelines in the Response to Submissions section on the Department’s Major Projects webpage.

How does the proposal consider sustainability?

Landcom has a mandate to create great places that are innovative and productive, resilient, inclusive, affordable and environmentally sustainable.

A Climate and Community Resilience Assessment was undertaken on Kellyville to provide a deeper understanding of the community’s exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity to a range of climate impacts. This study looked at the impacts of extreme heat, temperature and possible future climate scenarios at Kellyville.

This Assessment was used to inform site specific sustainability targets and initiatives for the approved concept which need to be met by future built form. These targets directly contribute to a net-zero carbon precinct and include specific responses to the urban heat island effect and increased temperatures, including (but not limited to) shading requirements, increased tree canopy, building material selection and green infrastructure.

When will the Kellyville Station Precinct be developed?

Minister for Planning approved the concept State Significant Development Application in December 2022. Following the concept plan approval, Landcom, has commenced submitting their Development Applications to the Hills Shire Council as part of the ongoing planning of the sites prior to releasing the sites to the market.

We will deliver infrastructure such as roads and services, and new open spaces to enable future developers to deliver housing within the precinct.

We will be undertaking a competitive tendering process to appoint a developer to commence the delivery of housing. The date for construction to commence will not be known as the future developer will need to undertake a detailed design Development Application (DA) process before the commencement of construction. Once this process is underway a delivery timeline will be determined by the future developer.

Furthermore, Kellyville is one of the eight accelerated precincts identified by the Department of Planning under the Transit Oriented Development (TOD) - Accelerated Precincts. Further information can be found on the Department of Planning website Transport Oriented Development Program – Accelerated Precincts | Planning (  

What housing types will be included?

The approved concept allows for a range of housing to meet the needs of people at various life stages including, but not limited to, young workers, downsizers, families and single person households. This could include housing above shops, units of different sizes, units over multiple levels and terrace style housing.

The approved concept also includes minimum 5% Affordable Housing for very low, low and moderate households where rent is less than 30% of household income, in line with Landcom’s Housing Affordability and Diversity Policy. This Affordable Housing will be managed by a Community Housing Provider.

When will the Kellyville Station Precinct be developed?

Landcom is the master developer for the Kellyville Station Precinct and will appoint development partners to deliver the approved concept. Development sites will be released via a competitive tender process, with a range of market opportunities available over the next 5 years. Future developers will need to lodge development applications for buildings before they can start construction.
