Grenville Street Development Residential Development

In 2005, Urban Growth began working with local landowners group the Vineyard Riverstone Marsden Park Development Inc (VRMPD) to find a way to make development happen.

In 2008 we widened this discussion to include all landowners in the Scheduled Lands. Since that time we have provided information through a regular landholder newsletter, this website and an information phone line. We have also continued to seek landowner feedback through a series of landholder surveys.

Urban Growth is interested in talking to landowners in the Scheduled Lands with land zoned Low density R2 residential. We are keen to hear your views about the future development of your land.

More recently, Urban Growth met with landowners in the beginning of May 2013 to update landowners on our work and discuss the next steps in developing the Scheduled Lands.

Information presented at the community information sessions can be downloaded here.
