2400 New Homes Slated For Sydney's North West


A new community in Sydney’s northwest - located in the State Government's north-west priority growth area - is being planned with 2,400 new homes, improved transport options and around 24 hectares of open space.

The draft plan for a new community at Vineyard presents a new vision for a place where people can live, work and play with houses and terraces; a proposed new primary school; sports fields; walking and cycling trails; and a village centre with shops and cafes.

The community will have access to Vineyard railway station and new bus routes. Road upgrades are also planned in the area.

Planning Minister Rob Stokes said Vineyard is an example of the NSW Government’s efforts to boost housing supply.

“We’re working hard to deliver more new homes where they’re needed, and provide the infrastructure and public facilities to support those new homes,” Mr Stokes said.

“As our city grows and changes it’s important the community reaps the benefits of that growth with more jobs close to home, good transport, improved public facilities and high-quality green space areas.”

Member for Hawkesbury Dominic Perrottet and Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly welcomed the draft plan.

“The Government has taken the time to carefully plan this exciting new development at Vineyard. Combined with the area’s rail and road infrastructure this will be another fantastic addition to our growing community,” Mr Perrottet said.

“We want to see Vineyard grow and flourish as a vibrant community, and this plan will help achieve this,” Mr Conolly said.
According To The Government, The Draft Plan For Vineyard (Stage 1) Aims To:

  • Create a mix of housing
    "For the first time in precinct planning, we are setting a maximum number of homes that can be built in a precinct. Referred to as a housing density cap, this will be ensure that the needs of the future residents are well balanced with the infrastructure and services planned and provided.Planning for Vineyard is based on a future population of approximately 7,400 and infrastructure such as the new road network, land for drainage, the primary school and the provision of water, sewer and electricity services has been planned to meet the needs of future residents.The cap will also be considered for other areas of the North West Priority Growth Area to ensure that communities have access to the right infrastructure and services."
  • Create a new village centre and primary school
  • Provide essential infrastructure
  • Improve connections by extending the road network
  • Provide more public transport options
  • Provide open spaces and parks
  • Protect the environment and heritage
  • Manage the risk of flooding
  • The draft Vineyard Precinct Plan is open for public exhibition until 28 February 2017.
