The Area 20 Precinct was rezoned for urban development in October 2011 by the Minister for Planning and Infrastructure.
Area 20 was one of the first release Precincts in the North West Growth Centre.
It is bounded by Schofields to the south, Windsor Road to the east and the ridge line to the west. The Precinct is strategically located opposite Rouse Hill Town Centre.
The 245-hectare Precinct will deliver capacity for approximately 2,500 new dwellings to accommodate 6,400 residents. It will also:
make provision for the proposed North West Rail Link corridor, railway station, commuter car parks and part of the train stabling yard
create a village centre linked to the station
create a 6 hectare light industrial area on land surrounding the stabling yard
provide 19 hectares of local open space for recreation and sports
provide for the delivery of power, water and sewer infrastructure and local services, and
protect areas of environmental importance, native vegetation and flood prone land.
Implications for landowners
Although land has been rezoned, there is no compulsion to develop. Landowners can choose to develop or not develop their property. They can also choose to develop part of their property. Under ‘existing use rights’, landowners can continue with current uses (provided the use is already lawfully commenced).
The rezoning is accompanied by a Development Control Plan. Blacktown City Council is currently preparing a Section 94 Contribution Plan. The Council intends to exhibit this Plan in the near future.
The Department will consult with the North West Rail Link project team to determine when a new Development Control Plan for the Cudgegong Station Area can be expected.

For information about zoning and other relevant planning information which may apply to properties in Area 20, contact Blacktown City Council and request a Section 149 Planning Certificate.
The State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) Amendment (Area 20 Precinct) 2011 and maps relating to the rezoning are available on the NSW legislation website (click on 'maps' from the top menu).
Amendment to Area 20 Precinct Plan (Oct 2011)
A proposed amendment to the Area 20 Precinct Plan was on exhibition for public comment from Wednesday 26 October 2011 until 2 December 2011.
The proposed amendment will insert a clause into the Area 20 Precinct Plan suspending agreements, covenants or other instruments that may affect development. Similar provisions are included in other Precinct Plans in the North West Growth Centre.
