The Variety of Developments in Blacktown

As Blacktown is currently undergoing dramatic change with the large land release areas as part of the Sydney Growth Area the types of developments are diverse to keep up with the change. Below are some examples of the types of developments common for the Blacktown Area.

Dwelling House

Blacktown area is starting to become a hot designation for new beautiful architecturally designed homes. We have helped many of our clients get the home of their dreams despite height limits and floor space ratio restrictions.

Multi Dwelling Houses

Why build 2 houses when you could build 4! Multi dwelling housing allows you to build multiple dwellings on the one lot and then subdivide through strata subdivision.

Shop Top Housing

Blacktown has some great town centres filled with shops. We have helped our clients with their shop top housing projects to provide residential accommodation above street shops and offices.

Dual Occupancy

Dual occupancies are becoming common in Blacktown LGA particularly around the Sydney Growth Centre with many of our Blacktown clients wanting to maximise on the land size and intensify the development potential for their site.

Boarding Houses

Boarding Houses are becoming increasingly popular in Blacktown and surrounds. Through the SEPP Affordable rental housing developers are able to provide high density studio apartments for lower income residents.


The Blacktown area is still booming with large subdivisions occurring in land release areas around the growth centre. Smaller subdivisions are also common with clients taking advantage of some of the incentive clauses within the LEP to create undersize lots.

Change of Use

We commonly help our clients get approval for their new business premises. Whether it is a new trendy store on at Kellyville, a new restaurant in Blacktown or a Boutique Beer Bar at Eastern Creek, we can help get your approval.

Rezoning - Planning Proposals

Sometimes our clients come to us with plans to rezone land to allow for better outcomes for their site. Whether it is turning rural land into residential or low density to high density.

Objection Letters

View loss and privacy impacts are the biggest source of objection for all developments. Our objection letters are thorough and detailed and we have a good track record for refusal or at least forcing the developer to redesign for a better outcome.
