A new Telopea is coming

It won’t happen overnight but the much needed transformation of Telopea is on its way.

Ministers Pru Goward and Anthony Roberts visited the rundown suburb on Friday to announce a rezoning proposal that will transform Telopea with new homes and a vibrant town centre.

The proposal includes plans for improved open spaces, a new community centre and a potential new town centre alongside the light rail stop.

A travelator is also proposed for those who struggle going up the hill on Sturt Street, Telopea’s main thoroughfare.

“This is an in important milestone in the development of Sydney,” Mr Roberts said.

“We have a vision to turn tired old areas into vibrant communities.”

Under the NSW government’s social housing building program, between 4500-4900 new social, affordable and private homes are to be built at the site.
