A new community information display has opened at Trader & Co. in Yass this week as part of ongoing engagement with the local community for the Parkwood Planning Proposal.

The Parkwood Planning Proposal is the NSW component of the larger Ginninderry project, which is proposed to be the first cross-border development in Australian history.

For those not already familiar with the project, Joint Venture (JV) partners the ACT Government and Riverview Developments Pty Ltd (on behalf of the Corkhill Brothers Pty Ltd, and in addition to the four adjoining land owners), have proposed a plan to integrate the ACT-NSW communities through the project.

While rezoning of the ACT land was approved in 2016, the decision whether to rezone the area in NSW is anticipated to occur in 2018. Even if the area is rezoned next year, however, the earliest development is not expected to occur in NSW until 2033.


At Trader & Co., visitors can learn about the history of the project, see an indicative timeline, watch a video about the Corkhill family’s unique connection to the region and view other interactive displays – all at the same time as sipping on coffee, fresh juices and smoothies, along with the other winter warmers on offer.

While a formal community consultation period as part of the NSW government planning process is not scheduled to commence until late this year, a member of our Parkwood Planning Proposal team will generally be at Trader & Co. between 11am – 1pm, from Tuesday to Friday for a range of weeks between now and November.

An updated list will be made available at ginninderry.com/planning-and-community/parkwood-planning-proposal/ of when our team will be at Trader & Co.

And for those looking to fill their fridges and pantries with delicious produce from the Yass Farmers Markets on Saturday 15 July, why not also stop by the Parkwood project team stall for a chat? We look forward to meeting you on the day.
