Currently a vibrant shopping village with great multicultural retail and food outlets appreciated by customers, the centre itself is old and has access and parking issues.

At this stage the centre needs more than a renovation, our plans to fully renew the centre will provide the local community and future residents with shops, services and community spaces within a modern, architecturally design town centre.

We recognise the important role Eastlakes Shopping Centre plays within the local community and also the impact of some of our existing operations. We believe our proposed plans will help to address many of these issues.

Approval was received from the Planning Assessment Commission in 2013 to redevelop the centre and the adjacent northern site. Since 2013 a modification to the existing approval has been approved by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment for the North Site.

A modification for the South site responding to the changes occurring to the surrounding area was lodged with the Department of Planning and Environment and placed on public exhibition for comment for 28 days in November 2018. We thank the community for their interest in the centre and taking the time to make comment and share their thoughts.

Current Status of the Development

We have reviewed all submissions received from community, council and state government agencies to ensure our response is informed by a thorough understanding of all issues and suggestions.

We have made changes and relodged our amended planning proposal with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in response to feedback. The updated proposal responding to submissions can be viewed on the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment website. The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment has also written to all who lodged submissions.

You can also view information panels about the new proposal here.
