Austino is currently planning an extensive residential development on a 2 hectare site bounded by Blaxland Road, Epping Road, Forest Grove and Forest Park. The site includes the former Epping Bowling Club. This is a unique opportunity to redevelop a large site within 200 metres of Epping Station and one which Austino has exciting plans for. Given the site’s location immediately adjacent to the Epping Urban Activation Precinct, the future built form will be integrated with the urban design framework already established to the north.
The opportunity to develop this site will not only enhance liveability, the economy and environment but it would not be in the interest of the community:
There would be no opportunity to expand Forest Park and enhancement would be limited
The chance of widening Epping Road would be limited without compulsory acquisition
There would be no guarantee of removing the need for vehicular access off Epping Road or of a pedestrian through site link from Epping Road to Forest Park
Connectivity paths between local roads and parks would not be a priority
