Epping Planning Review Discussion Paper

In May 2016, the council amalgamations process saw the Epping Town Centre fall entirely within the jurisdiction of the new City of Parramatta. This presents an opportunity to address the planning for Epping as a whole centre over the next 20 years.

The Epping Planning Review project investigates a number of planning issues raised by the community for Epping town centre and surrounds.

The project includes a review of Epping’s heritage, traffic and transport, social infrastructure needs and commercial floor space needs.  
The Epping Planning Review Discussion Paper is the major milestone for Stage 1 of the Epping Planning Review. The purpose of the Discussion Paper is to:

  • explain the background and context around the need to undertake the Epping Planning Review;
  • propose appropriate options, recommendations, and suggest principles for adoption, taking into consideration both technical study findings and community opinion; and
  • invite comment on the Discussion Paper so the community can assist Council to develop new planning controls for the Epping Town Centre and immediate surrounds.

Council is seeking community feedback via targeted questions. Please quote the relevant question code for each targeted question that you respond to.

Your feedback on the Discussion Paper is important.  You may make submissions in writing via:

Letter: Epping Planning Review
City of Parramatta Council
PO Box 32

Email: placeservices@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au with the subject Epping Planning Review

All submissions are to be received by 5pm, Wednesday 19 July 2017. 

The Discussion Paper will also be available at Epping Library and City of Parramatta Council Customer Service Centre Office during opening hours.

A number of key principals for Epping’s future will be adopted as an outcome of the Discussion Paper. 

Information sessions 

City of Parramatta will also be holding a number of public Information Sessions to help members of the public understand the contents of the Discussion. Staff will be available to answer questions. Visit here for more information.
