Tallawong development project

The Tallawong Project is made up of a number of smaller places or precincts of developable government land owned by Sydney Metro. These places will be developed over time. The first place we are planning for development is Tallawong Station Precinct South.

Stage one: Tallawong Station Precinct South

The vision for Tallawong Station Precinct South is for an active, walkable town centre, with places to live and work, with a village park and metro station as its focus.

The State Significant Development Application (SSDA) lodged by Landcom with the (then) Department of Planning and Environment in 2018 was approved in February 2019. The application sought approval for:

  • 16 buildings between two to eight storeys
  • a village park
  • 1,100 residential dwellings
  • a minimum 5% Affordable Housing
  • commercial, retail and community uses. 

Landcom issued a Call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) to potential development partners to work with us on Tallawong Station Precinct South. Following the EOI stage, a shortlist of developers were invited to tender and Deicorp were awarded the contract.

Community and other stakeholder engagement

Engaging with the community and stakeholders is an important part of the planning and delivery stage of any development. We held a community information session about the Tallawong project in March 2018 and another in August 2018  to provide an update on planning for the site and to seek feedback on issues for us to consider.

We heard about the importance of:

  • open spaces
  • spaces for community use
  • connecting planned shared paths with existing shared paths
  • minimising potential traffic impacts.

In response to community feedback, our concept included spaces that could be used for community uses, a village park, connected shared paths and easy access to the station to reduce possible car use by future residents.

During public exhibition of the concept SSDA in 2018, we received 12 submissions from government agencies and 20 submissions from community members. Key issues raised by the community included:

  • traffic and parking impacts
  • change of character due to building heights
  • impact on existing roads and other services.

We refined the concept proposal to address a number of issues raised during the public exhibition, by:

  • increasing the village park by more than 500m2
  • relocating the retail plaza to increase daylight to the plaza.

Landcom has since submitted and had approval for the SSDA Concept Design. Subscribe below to receive updates and notifications as they come.
