Townson Road, Marsden Park


The Townson Road Precinct is located within the North West Priority Growth Area (NWPGA), formerly located within the Schoeflieds Precinct. Mecone assisted the landowners in obtaining the only part precinct release for development in the NWPGA, allowing a rezoning application to be made to Blacktown city Council. The rezoning of the greenfield site for residential development was secured in June 2016.

Subsequent development Consents have been achieved for the southern portion of the Townson Road Precinct. The northern portion of the precinct is subject of current development applications that once approved will create a residential neighbourhood of approximately 500 x residential dwellings as well as parkland, environmental conservation and drainage.

Scope of Works

Mecone was engaged as Project Manger and representative for the landowner group as well as undertaking the planning services for the rezoning.
