Bonnyrigg’s multimillion dollar housing boom

13 February 2023

The NSW Liberal and Nationals Government’s $855 million Bonnyrigg Renewal Project is moving into its next delivery phase in stages 8 to 11, following the appointment of a development partner to deliver 275 more homes including 65 new social homes for Western Sydney.

Minister for Planning and Minister for Homes Anthony Roberts said 702 dwellings, including 256 social homes had already been completed in earlier stages 1 to 7 of the state-significant urban renewal project.

“This is an ambitious project that is transforming the former Bonnyrigg social housing estate in Western Sydney to become a vibrant, mixed-tenure precinct, by taking 833 ageing social properties and creating 3,000 new homes for residents, 900 of which are dedicated for social housing,” Mr Roberts said.

Minister for Families and Communities and Minister for Disability Services Natasha Maclaren-Jones said the NSW Liberal and Nationals Government is committed to creating secure communities for the state’s most vulnerable.

“We are not only investing in housing where it’s needed most, but we’re creating a safe place for people to live and work. This precinct is providing more than just a roof over people’s head, it is providing a new community centre, open space, and town centre with a village green so residents can thrive,” Mrs Maclaren-Jones said. 

The project also makes great use of the existing Parramatta to Liverpool rapid bus transitway that is nearby.

Following a competitive procurement process to the market, the NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) has appointed Sydney-based developer Traders In Purple to deliver these next stages of the Bonnyrigg Renewal project.

LAHC Chief Executive Simon Newport said the Bonnyrigg Renewal displays how partnerships can deliver more homes for the community.

“We were able to secure $26.4 million of Commonwealth funding through the National Housing Infrastructure Fund, which unlocks critical infrastructure such as improvements to the road network that are crucial to delivering this type of project,” Mr Newport said.

“When all levels of government, community housing providers and industry come to the table with a shared vision to deliver more and better homes for the people who need it most, we can achieve great things and the transformation underway at Bonnyrigg is a shining example of that.”

As part of the earlier stages of the renewal project, Landcom has also managed the construction and completion of a $7 million 841 square metre community centre, using funds from LAHC under its voluntary planning agreement with Fairfield City Council.

Fairfield City Council Mayor Frank Carbone said the new community centre will be called The Hub @ Bonnyrigg (Dhanawi) and it will become a central focal point for all aspects of community life for local residents, with a large hall for social and cultural activities, meeting rooms, a kitchen and play areas for children. Council will own and manage the new facility moving forwards.

“The Hub @ Bonnyrigg (Dhanawi) will allow people to come together to meet and celebrate, with fully accessible facilities and a community garden. We are proud to have worked together with LAHC to design and deliver this facility for our community,” Mr Carbone said.

The transformation of the Bonnyrigg Estate is a major 30-year project that will be delivered over 18 stages, creating 4,275 jobs and delivering homes for more than 9,000 residents.

Works on the latest stage of the development are set to commence in April 2023.
