Consultation has concluded.
Erskine Park Urban Reinvestment is an innovative project by Penrith City Council to revitalise public spaces and deliver a new residential offering to the suburb.
As part of the Greater Western Sydney region, Erskine Park is located 42 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district and is approximately 20 kilometres from both the Penrith and Parramatta CBD’s. It's a thriving established community that provides an abundance of parks, excellent transport links and amenities.
Penrith City Council has combined its extensive experience in urban planning and design to rejuvenate underutilised public open space reserves into vibrant new residential places to grow the Erskine Park community.
This exciting opportunity will feature approximately eight lots and offer a diverse range of housing options, including single residential, dual living or dual occupancy homes.
The project provides an opportunity for Penrith City Council to showcase innovation through demonstration by targeting levels of sustainability beyond best practice and aiming to deliver an environmentally sensitive development by minimising water and energy consumption, while retaining trees and biodiversity.

Public Open Space Transformation
Council identified open space sites in Erskine Park that were underutilised or in need of an upgrade to meet resident’s expectations, as part of its Open Space Reinvestment Project. As a result, six sites have been rezoned for residential development with the proceeds from the sale of this land going directly into improving targeted open space and public domain areas within Erskine Park.
Council has already forward funded $2.65 million of open space and public domain improvements from the anticipated sale of these sites including:
- Four kilometres of continuous footpaths along the Swallow and Peppertree loop road
- Redevelopment Pacific and Phoenix ReservePhoenix ReservePhoenix Reserve

- Chameleon Reserve Masterplan(External link)
- Chameleon Reserve co-funding of the Five Million Trees Grant in-line with the masterplan, which delivered$300k in tree planting(External link)
It is anticipated that the remainder of the funds generated from the sale of the land will be directed towards the implementation of the Chameleon Reserve masterplan.
Once complete, the project will inject approx. $5 million back into Erskine Park and contribute to Penrith City Council’s vision for creating a more liveable and contemporary community that is adapting to the future needs of residents.
New low-density homes will also be constructed on the sites featuring best practice sustainable design and inclusions while ensuring consistency with the residential development standards of the neighbourhood.
Marketing of House and Land Packages and Vacant Land
It is anticipated that the marketing of the vacant land sites and house and land packages will commence in 2024. To register your interest please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
