Plans for up to 3,500 new homes in Sydney’s south-west are in place for surplus government land in Glenfield.

Landcom, the New South Wales government property arm says it will transform the land around the existing Hurlstone Agricultural High School into a new housing development and community.

The state-owned corporation says the range of housing type will reflect greater housing diversity, including a mixture of detached houses, terraces, small lot dwellings, apartments and seniors housing.

While a detailed concept plan, in consultation between the New South Wales government, Campbelltown City Council and Landcom is yet to be delivered for public exhibition, the development’s master-plan will include new sporting fields, a primary school, and a new commercial centre, subject to approvals.

The Glenfield masterplan rezoning process is expected to be completed in early 2021, with a development application to be lodged with Campbelltown City Council.

“Landcom is thrilled to deliver a thriving new sustainable community within the Glenfield Precinct,” Landcom chief executive John Brogden said.

“With around 3,500 new homes and a large tract of high-quality, public open space that retains Glenfield’s rich history as a significant agricultural education precinct.”

Brogden said a component of the plan includes 5 to 10 per cent of homes set aside for affordable rental housing.

“For key workers such as nurses’ aides, child care and retail workers.”

If approved, work is expected to commence by early 2022.

The heritage-listed Macquarie Fields House will be protected, along with other heritage areas, including the Memorial Forest that pays tribute to school students who served in World War One and World War Two.

In Sydney's inner south, a joint development project forming part of the Green Square Town Centre between Landcom and ASX-listed Mirvac was green-lit this month.

The four tower project, comprising 316 apartments and ground floor retail, will move ahead in Zetland.
