Hills Corridor Strategy


Hills Corridor Strategy outlines our vision

As a direct result of the North West Rail Link, more than 50,000 new residents will move to The Hills over the next 20 years – over and above the 100,000 expected under the State Government’s Metropolitan Strategy.

In order to start a discussion about what the Shire’s future suburbs will look like, Council has created the draft Hills Corridor Strategy - a plan that creates a vision for the Sydney Hills of the future.

The strategy looks specifically at ways to meet future housing and employment growth expected for the areas around Cherrybrook, Castle Hill, Showground, Norwest, Bella Vista, Kellyville and Rouse Hill stations, while ensuring densities are delivered in a carefully planned and liveable way.

The strategy moves away from using building heights and uses a framework of dwellings per hectare to encourage diversity and innovation in the way dwellings are delivered.

It allows for more housing than the State Government’s Corridor Strategy, but encourages quality design and good built form as well as considering the critical roads, parks and services that additional residents need.
