Welcome to Newleaf at Bonnyrigg
Landcom is assisting Land and Housing Corporation NSW (LAHC) to redevelop part of the housing estate at Bonnyrigg. Together we are providing new social and private homes, as well as roads, parks and facilities, to create an inclusive and vibrant community.
Construction of homes in Stage 4 has started. For safety reasons, the current road closures and site fencing will stay in place while we build the new houses. Please continue to take note of the signs and safety fencing around the construction area, as these will indicate any changes to vehicle and pedestrian access during the works.
While the houses are being built, traffic will enter the site from:
- Edensor Road, along Newleaf Parade
- Humphries Road, along Bunker Parade
- Humphries Road, along Bishop Crescent.
Contractors have been asked to park on the construction site and to minimise the use of neighbouring streets for access and deliveries. Thank you for your patience while this work is being carried out.
In August 2017, we submitted a Development Application (DA) to Fairfield City Council for development of Stages 6a and 7 of the project. This is for the area between Bunker Parade, Wall Place, Tarlington Parade and Palisade Crescent. Click here to view the plan. The DA includes the demolition of Land and Housing Corporation-owned homes in Stubbs Place, Kain Place and Bean Place, as well as numbers 12, 13, and 14 Laycock Place. All affected residents have been notified and are being assisted with their relocation by Newleaf Communities.
The new development is for 161 homes of which around 30% will be for social tenants and 70% for private sale. The development includes for a variety of new homes including 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and 3 and 4 bed houses. The houses include terraces, duplexes and detached homes. The apartments will be located on Wall Place opposite the Newleaf Communities offices and will look like the image below.
Subject to approvals, we expect to commence work in mid -2018, though demolition may occur earlier.
