Edmondson Park

A vibrant new community with a range of homes, shops, community facilities and open spaces, accessible by public transport.

Edmondson Park is a major land release area in the southwest growth region of Sydney, 24km from Parramatta, with access to public transport.

Extending across the two adjoining suburbs of Edmondson Park in the north and Bardia in the south, Landcom has developed a masterplan for the area, which includes a town centre, residential areas, schools, community facilities, recreation areas and a regional park.

About the project

Edmondson Park is located in south west Sydney, on land previously used by the Department of Defence to train the Australian army. The project area extends across the two adjoining suburbs of Edmondson Park in the north and Bardia in the south.

Landcom is partnering with the private sector to unlock development opportunities at Edmondson Park to create a brand new suburb with a mix of different sized homes, open space, shops and community facilities with access to public transport.

We completed masterplanning, and built and sold the first residential lots at Edmondson Park. Frasers Property Group is undertaking works to construct the new town centre south of the station, and Dahua is developing residential land in Bardia.

Once complete the area will include:

  • a new town centre with up to 45,000m2 of retail, business and commercial space
  • about 4,500 new homes, with a mix of housing types
  • upgrades to parts of Campbelltown Road
  • new and upgraded schools, and childcare facilities
  • a 150 hectare regional park and a network of smaller community parks, playgrounds, playing fields and reserves
  • new walkways and cycleways
  • public art.

We are continuing to lead delivery of Edmondson Park in partnership with the private sector.

The project will benefit the community by:

  • delivering a range of housing types, at different price-points, to provide opportunity for households of all sizes, and incomes, to own their own home
  • reusing underutilised government owned land to create a well-planned community with homes, shops, open space, schools and community facilities, with access to future transport connections to growing centres in Liverpool and Campbelltown and the new Western Sydney Airport.

Current works

We have lodged an application with the Department of Planning, Infrastructure and Environment to amend the Edmondson Park Concept Plan and the State Environmental Planning Policy (State Significant Precincts) 2005, where they relate to the Town Centre North.

Town Centre North

We have lodged an application with the Department of Planning, Infrastructure and Environment to amend the Edmondson Park Town Centre (North) Concept Plan and the State Environmental Planning Policy (State Significant Precincts) 2005.

On Saturday 4 August 2018, Landcom held an information session for the community to provide feedback on the proposed amendments.

We advertised this consultation session in local papers and letterbox dropped more than 4,000 properties. Thirty seven people attended the session.

A number of issues were identified during the consultation process, including traffic and parking, building heights and open space. These issues were addressed in the engagement outcomes report and will be considered further when we undertake detailed planning for the precinct.

The application was on public exhibition from 7 November to 4 December 2018. A copy of our application is available on the Department of Planning and Environment’s website  .

We are currently reviewing the submissions received during the exhibition. We are planning to lodge a Response to Submissions to the Department of PlanningInfrastructure and Environment later this year.

Education program

The Edmondson Park education program provides teaching and learning resources to assist school students to investigate the geography, history and heritage value of Edmondson Park, and to understand its changing identity as a growing community.

Edmondson Park offers students the opportunity to investigate a significant development project inside and outside the classroom. It raises questions about why places grow and how the demographic, economic and social features of areas change.

Heritage

The Edmondson Park area has an important Indigenous history. The Darug, Dharawal and Gundangara people occupied the area for thousands of years before the arrival of European settlers.

The area also has strong links to Australia’s military history, including Bardia Barracks and Mont St Quentin Oval, which together make up the state heritage listed Ingleburn Military Heritage Precinct. Bardia Barracks was the first purpose-built defence base and training ground during World War Two. The Barracks were also used during the Korean and Vietnam wars.

We are exploring opportunities to restore the Barracks and are continuing to work with local military and heritage groups with a connection to the site.

Later this year we will begin works to upgrade Mont St Quentin Oval which will include an oval, amenities building, restored heritage items, landscaping, children’s playground and BBQ facilities.

We have incorporated the Indigenous and military history into the area. Many streets feature Indigenous and military names and some public artworks reflect military themes.
