Welcome to the Riverstone Chamber of Commerce!

Drought, bushfires and one heck of a downpour, and a Blacktown City Council Planning Proposal for Riverstone thrown in for good measure! It's been a demanding few weeks for businesses around North West Sydney, helped a bit by our continuing efforts with the Elara markets and donations to our farmers and firefighters over Christmas. Now we're halfway through February and we're engaged with Council on their proposal to rebuild Riverstone into something similar to Castle Towers/Hill, Rouse Hill and Parramatta. It's an exciting vision and has certainly got businesses and residents talking, although the plans avoid tackling the elephant in the room - the dreaded Riverstone traffic! This was the focal point for our February networking breakfast, held for the first time at the Riverstone RSL Sub-Branch, an ironic (and iconic!) location given Council wants to acquire this site for the 'new' Riverstone.

So what's next?

Step 1. Download the planning proposal below (hover over it)

Step 2. See how the Planning Proposal might affect Riverstone via our Facebook site (below right)

Step 3. Make a submission email via the yellow box below. Quote that reference number and then explain how Council's proposals might affect your business and what else you think Riverstone needs to flourish. As a quick reminder, the Proposal's key headlines are: 

    • A rezoned town centre comprising 20m, 32m and 50m buildings, stretching east from the War Memorial and Riverstone Station towards Piccadilly Street
    • Up to 3,800 new units in 9 storey apartment blocks
    • Riverstone's population doubling with up to 10,000 new residents making Riverstone their home
    • Changed (probably higher) business and land rates
    • No traffic solution
And remember, your submission will hopefully make a good Council plan a great Council plan!
