New housing developments planned in Sydney suburbs

By Staff Reporter

Thousands of new houses will be built in EppingEpping, VIC Epping, NSW and Lidcombe under a New South Wales government plan to revitalise these areas.

The state minister for planning Brad Hazzard announced yesterday that wide-scale residential construction, retail development and infrastructure works would be undertaken in both suburbs.

In Epping, plans have been finalised to provide around 3,750 new houses in a new mixed use precinct that will incorporate commercial and retail construction.

In addition, the town centre will be re-zoned to allow taller buildings around the railway station, new retail construction and improved transport infrastructure.

In Lidcombe, meanwhile, a proposal is in place to re-zone an unused industrial site.

“The rezoning proposal for the area around Carter Street, Lidcombe would see an old industrial site transformed into an attractive, vibrant community with access to Parramatta River to take advantage of the world-class infrastructure at Sydney Olympic Park,” Mr Hazzard said.

The development would hold around 5,500 new homes, as well as commercial and retail buildings.

The suburb would also benefit from a new primary school along Carter Street and a 1.8 hectare park.

Mr Hazzard said the new development in Lidcombe would go hand-in-hand with improved transport links.

“The plans include new bus services, direct access to the M4 as part of the $11 billion WestConnex motorway, and upgrades to local intersections and congestion hotspots.”

Pedestrian and cycling facilities would link the area to facilities at Olympic Park.

According to Mr Hazzard, the plans are a response to the need for increased housing options in Sydney.

“Despite the recent increase in the number of new homes being built, after years of inaction under the former Labor government, the need for more and different types of housing in Sydney has never been more pressing,” he said.
