The NSW Government has finalised a new plan for Frenchs Forest that will focus on new homes, jobs, open spaces and infrastructure.

Minister for Planning and Homes Anthony Roberts said the finalised strategy was the result of extensive community consultation.

“The plan will deliver 2,000 new jobs as well as the infrastructure and services needed to support the growing Frenchs Forest community over the next 20 years,” Mr Roberts said.

“The strategy will bring better public spaces and plans for a new village green, central piazza, new connections to bushland as well as tree lined walking and cycling paths.

“The Department of Planning and Environment worked for several years to achieve a positive outcome for this area. I’m delighted that 2,000 new homes are on the way, including 250 right next to the hospital set aside for key workers.”

The strategy is also designed to help people live greener lifestyles by providing incentives, leading to more comfortable homes while also keeping energy and water bills down.”

More than $6 million has been allocated to Frenchs Forest under the Government’s Precinct Support Scheme to deliver upgrades to three local parks.

“The community will benefit from new local facilities including a new community playground, mountain bike track, half-court basketball facility, and regenerated natural areas for walking and relaxation,” Mr Roberts said.

“Northern Beaches Council has been given a $9 million grant under the Government’s Parks for People program to upgrade Nandi Reserve.”
