Rydalmere planning proposal

Property NSW has submitted a concept plan to City of Parramatta Council for the future redevelopment of land in Rydalmere, in Sydney’s north-west. 

About the proposal

The proposal would see a 19 hectare site, located at 26 Kissing Point Road and 266 Victoria Road, transformed into a residential neighbourhood, with green open space, retail and commercial uses, and preservation of the adjoining bushland. 

Some of the key features of this proposal include:  

  • Over 6,000 square metres of green open space, which will be accessible to the local community
  • An additional 3.5 hectares of accessible bushland reserve will be preserved and made accessible to the public along Vineyard Creek
  • Opportunity for commercial space with uses such as childcare and other community facilities 
  • Development of retail space accommodating a local supermarket, cafes and speciality retail to support the new and existing community
  • Around 2,550 residential dwellings
  • A new internal road network through the site with wide entry boulevards and footpaths and cycleways

 Project Benefits  

The proposal will deliver a number of benefits for the community and the broader economy, including:

  • Accelerated urban renewal and the provision of housing choice within the Greater Parramatta area
  • Provision of residential dwellings closer to employment opportunities in the Parramatta CBD, Rydalmere and Western Sydney University’s Rydalmere campus
  • Improved connectivity between the two university campuses by locating commercial uses in the southern part of the site
  • Creation of local jobs 
  • Preservation of biodiversity values in the Vineyard Creek corridor
  • Provision of significant open space 

Current Status 

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) issued a Gateway determination in September 2017, creating the opportunity for the local community to have its say on the proposal to rezone the site to accommodate a range of future uses.

Have Your Say 

The City of Parramatta Council will place this proposal on public exhibition for a 30-day period. 

Property NSW will hold community information sessions for local residents during the exhibition period at which you can find out more about the project.

Further information will be available shortly.
