Riverstone Scheduled Lands
About the Riverstone Scheduled Lands Precinct A (Stages 1-3) project
The Riverstone Scheduled Lands consists of about 1600 residential lots that are owned by over 320 landowner groups. While much of the Riverstone Scheduled Lands has been rezoned to allow for residential development, the land cannot be developed because it is not serviced with the necessary infrastructure such as roads, drainage, water, sewer and electricity, and does not comply with current local planning controls for minimum lot sizes.
UrbanGrowth NSW was appointed as the relevant authority in July 2015 to coordinate the development of approximately 300 lots in Riverstone Scheduled Lands Precinct A (Stages 1 – 3) on behalf of around 50 landowners.
In March 2016, the majority of landowners voted in favour of the Riverstone Scheduled Lands Development Plan (Precinct A (Stages 1-3) 2016. In November 2016 the NSW Minister for Planning issued a Subdivision Order to allow UrbanGrowth NSW, as the relevant authority, to implement the Development Plan.
A Development Application for the subdivision works in Stages 1 and 3 was on public exhibition at Blacktown City Council between 15 March and 28 April 2017 and is pending a decision from Council. A separate Development Application for Stage 2 is now on public exhibition with Blacktown City Council until 28 July 2017.
