A new development precinct planned for Sydney’s north-west growth corridor is set to offer thousands of new homes to Sydneysiders.
The NSW government release of the Marsden Park North masterplan shows 6200 new homes will be built in the precinct over the next 20 years.
The masterplanned community, which will offer a mixture of housing options, sits approximately 12 kilometres from Blacktown CBD and 20 kilometres from Parramatta's CBD.
Planning and housing minister Anthony Roberts said the plan includes three new local centres, a new primary school, 13 brand new playing fields and more useable open space proposed to benefit residents of the area.
“The new playing fields, public parks and the local centres will be easily accessible via new pathways and cycleways,” Roberts said.
“A wide range of homes would be provided for the diverse and growing community, easily accessed by new road upgrades and the Sydney Metro Northwest.”
Upgrades of Richmond Road, Garfield Road, Schofields Road and Bandon Road are planned to improve access to and from the development precinct.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly says Marsden Park North will eventually become part of the new suburbs of Angus, Marsden Park and Vineyard.
“Residents will also have access to the new Sydney Metro Northwest at Tallawong Station as well as existing Schofields and Riverstone Railway Stations," Conolly said.
The Sydney Metro Northwest at Tallawong Station is scheduled to open in 2019.
The Marsden Park North Masterplan is now open for local community feedback until October 26.
