The shape of things to come.
Ginninderry takes shape as a series of villages, arranged along a tree-lined avenue connecting pedestrians, cyclists, public transport and cars to local facilities.
This grand entry boulevard is flanked by impressive homes, presenting a welcoming “front door” to the community. It will have wide verges, a segregated safe cycle-only path, shared paths, trees and hedges and room for future traffic growth.
There will be a community hub focused on Strathnairn, after which the first suburb is named, as well as community, sporting, cultural and recreational facilities. Higher density attached homes spread out along a linear park, with quiet spaces, play spaces and a community garden all readily accessible. Links to the river corridor will invite you to explore this unique natural environment.
Ginninderry includes land in both the ACT and NSW. For the development to occur, the land on both sides of the border was rezoned. The ACT Territory Plan Variation (DV351) was approved in 2015 with an amendment to the National Capital Plan announced in July 2016. Planning and discussions with the community have been ongoing since 2013 for both the ACT and NSW components of the project site.
The NSW component of the project, known as the Parkwood Planning Proposal, was officially approved by the NSW Government in July 2020.
Development has commenced in our first suburb, Strathnairn (the eastern boundary of the site), and will extend westward in stages. Assuming that 300 dwelling sites are released each year it will take almost forty years until the project is complete.
It is likely to be at least 10 years before the development crosses the NSW border.
