Macquarie Park and Ivanhoe estate factsheet

The Department of Planning and Environment has been taking submissions on the Urban Activation Precinct at Herring Road, Macquarie Park, which includes the Ivanhoe estate. We'll follow up on those in a future post.

For the record, here's a factsheet from the Government's Macquarie Park Taskforce, which makes a few commitments in relation to the Ivanhoe estate.

It states:
  • If the Ivanhoe estate is redeveloped, the same number of social housing homes will be built. There will be no loss of social housing in the area.
  • If the estate is redeveloped, existing social housing residents will be relocated to new or vacant social housing that is suited to their needs.
  • Where tenants are relocated out of the estate to allow redevelopment to take place, they will have the option of moving back to the estate provided that a new dwelling is available that is also suited to their needs.

  1. yes some of us can return, but it seems that within 5 years we will have to pay full market rent! I do not know anyone who can afford to do this. Three years down the track and we are still being kept in the dark. Their form of consultation is not the same as ours!
