Riverwood Estate State Significant Precinct

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) publicly exhibited the Riverwood Estate State Significant Precinct (Stage 2) that proposes a total of 3,900 dwellings from 12 August to 25 September 2022.

The Riverwood Estate social housing estate is located within the Canterbury-Bankstown LGA. The Riverwood Estate is currently under renewal by the NSW Government.

Stage 1 included the completed Washington Park, which contains 757 dwellings (including 150 social housing units). The Estate currently contains about 994 social housing dwellings.

Stage 2 (State Significant Precinct) relates to the remainder of the Riverwood Estate and proposes a mix of private, social and affordable housing similar to the newly completed Washington Park. The total number of proposed dwellings in Stage 2 is 3,900.

The Riverwood Estate is immediately to the north of our LGA as shown in the figure below.


More information is available on the DPE’s Riverwood Estate State Significant Precinct webpage.

Information regarding the project timeline is available at the NSW Land and Housing Corporation's Riverwood Renewal Community Update.

What's happening now

After receiving community feedback and concerns regarding traffic issues outlined in the initial planning proposal, the NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) are collaborating closely with Transport for NSW to conduct additional investigations and modelling to explore alternative approaches. The development will not proceed in its current form until adequate road and traffic infrastructure issues are resolved.
