About the Project

Both developments utilise the FSR bonus of 0.5:1 available under State Environmental Planning Policy (Affordable Rental Housing) 2009 in order to maximise the number of units which can be developed for LAHC. The proposed development at the corner of Mannix Parade and McGirr Parade, Warwick Parade comprises a Crown Development Application, which proposes the construction of a 7 storey residential flat
building comprising 45 affordable housing units and one level of basement parking. The site is located within an evolving neighbourhood, recently rezoned R4 High Density Residential, located 100m north of the Hume Highway and 450m walking distance to Warwick Farm train station. The proposed development at 48-50 Wellington Road, Chester Hill comprises a Crown Development Application, which proposes the construction of a 6 storey residential flat building comprising 50 affordable housing units and one level of basement parking. The site is well located in the R4 High Density Residential zone, within the Chester Hill
Village Centre, only 350m walking distance from Chester Hill train station.
