Draft Rouse Hill Precinct Plan

Draft Rouse Hill Precinct Plan (The Fiddler and Surrounds).png

"A Plan to position Rouse Hill as a competitive mixed use centre that offers a range of residential, employment and lifestyle opportunities for the rapidly growing North West Region."

The Draft Rouse Hill Precinct Plan sets the framework for Rouse Hill to grow into a thriving regional destination and mixed use strategic centre, with employment opportunities to match the needs of local highly skilled residents.

The vision for the Centre builds on previous strategic work by The Hills Shire Council and the NSW Government as well as technical investigations focused on the Shire’s centres that provide insight into their unique features, role and function in the region. It advances the planning into finer grain, site specific detail to inform potential changes to planning controls and the infrastructure framework, which can occur as the market demands, with the support of appropriate infrastructure.

By 2041, the Precinct Plan envisages the Rouse Hill Strategic Centre will be a prime destination for knowledge intensive businesses focused on health, education, science, technology, finance and advanced manufacturing. Business will enjoy the proximity and ease of access to complementary services and facilities at nearby strategic centres of Castle Hill and Norwest and the economic competitiveness offered by enhanced connections to Sydney CBD, Greater Parramatta and the Western Sydney Airport.

Rouse Hill will be a key part of a linked network of strategic centres and prominent office markets that spans across the Sydney Region and will offer a range of employment opportunities suited to the highly skilled workforce that lives in The Hills Shire and rapidly developing North West Growth Area.

The Draft Precinct Plan is now on exhibition until 31 July 2023 and you are invited to have your say via the online form at the bottom of this page.

You are also invited to participate in one of our Consultation Sessions.
