About the Riverstone Scheduled Lands Precinct A (Stages 1-3) project

The Riverstone Scheduled Lands consists of about 1,600 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.

Landcom (then trading as 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 Landcom, as the relevant authority, to implement the Development Plan.

The Riverstone Scheduled Lands Development Plan Precinct A (Stages 1-3) 2016 sets out the development process, including:

  • The role of UrbanGrowth NSW in facilitating the subdivision of land.
  • The proposed subdivision works, including the delivery of infrastructure, and costings.
  • The funding options for landowner contributions.

Powers of acquisition to ensure the delivery of the subdivision and the Development Plan.

Current status

A Development Application (SPP-17-00001) for the subdivision works in Stages 1 and 3 was on public exhibition by Blacktown City Council between 15 March and 28 April 2017 and is pending a decision from Council.

A separate Development Application for Stage 2 (SPP-17-00011) was placed on public exhibition with Blacktown City Council between 26 June and 28 July 2017. A decision from Council is pending.

Subject to development approvals, subdivision works in Stage 1 are anticipated to commence in the second half of 2017.
