The vision

At the heart of the established Norwest Business Park and next to the Norwest Station, the Norwest Station project Precinct (25 – 31 Brookhollow Avenue, Norwest) will provide potential spaces for A grade corporate office and retail spaces, commercial strata unit short-term accommodation, coworking facilities, open spaces and entertainment destinations for the community to enjoy.

The proximity to the Norwest Metro station offers for workers, visitors and customers which will encourage employment opportunities. The new thriving business area will support an estimated 2,800 new local jobs. The site benefits from a convenient underground pedestrian link beneath Norwest Boulevard, provides an easy connection to Norwest Marketown Shopping Centre.

Norwest planning proposal

In December 2018, Landcom lodged a Planning Proposal with The Hills Shire Council to support the amendment of The Hills Local Environment Plan (LEP) 2012. The amendment will enable the development of a diverse employment centre on the government owned land adjacent to the new Norwest Station. The planning proposal seeks to amend The Hills Local Environmental Plan (LEP) to alter the development controls for land at 25-31 Brookhollow Avenue, Norwest by increasing the Floor Space Ratio and Height of Building controls, and reducing the minimum lot size for this land. The proposal also seeks to permit ‘neighbourhood supermarkets’ as an additional permitted use on the site.

Amending the LEP could facilitate a commercial, retail and hotel development within three buildings with heights up to 11, 23 and 25 storeys providing for approximately 1,700 new jobs. The site will provide approximately 39,455m2 of office floor space, 3,900m2 of retail floor space (including 1,000m2 for a small format supermarket), and 8,645m2 of short term accommodation such as a hotel.

In 2019, The Hills Shire Council submitted a Council Report to the Local Planning Panel regarding the Norwest Planning Proposal recommending to proceed to Gateway Determination which was endorsed by the Local Planning Panel. The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment also supported the proposal. You can review the report and the Determination here.

Landcom is assisting The Hills Shire Council to prepare information for public exhibition of the proposed changes to the LEP, which is expected to occur at some stage in 2021. Following the exhibition period, Council will prepare a report with the submissions received and provide this to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for their consideration. Once the LEP is amended, Landcom’s future appointed development partner will lodge a development application with Council for the future built form.

Community and other stakeholder engagement

We anticipate exhibition of the Planning Proposal for the Norwest Precinct in 2021. There will be an opportunity for local community and businesses to provide feedback on the proposal at that time.

You can view the Planning Proposal on The Hills Shire Council website by searching for Application Number 6/2019/PLP.

You can track the progress of the Gateway Determination on the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment LEP online system.
