Key Facts

Located on Oxford & Cambridge Streets, Epping, the new community will celebrate the site’s heritage, with the existing Church being the focal point of the site.

Our proposal includes a redeveloped school and playgrounds, renewed community and parish building comprising a parish hall with capacity for 400 people and parish office facilities, 172 retirement living units, a 132 bed aged care facility, a retail space and basement car parking.

The site will initially include a one-stream primary school (i.e. one class per year level) with the space allocation and planning provision to become a two-stream primary school (i.e. two classes per year level) to meet demand.

Plans for the new community include:

  • A new one-stream primary school to the south of the church, with provision for a future second stream to meet demand.
  • A new parish hall with capacity for 400 people, and parish administration building to the north of the church.
  • A new residential community including 172 independent living apartments and a 132 bed residential aged care facility.
  • A priest’s residence.
  • A 200m² retail space.
  • Open space, including green space, greater than what is currently provided.
  • New parish and school car parking located within the basement.

 

Community Benefit

  • A new parish hall for the community where many different types of local activities will occur with local providers.
  • Parking for the local parish, bringing car parking off the street.
  • A new school for the children in the local community.
  • A new aged care facility for the older residents of the local community.
  • Retirement Living units that provide a great amenity and community for active, older people and those who need help with a small amount of care but are not ready for aged care.
  • Public domain space in front of the parish hall – a space in the Epping town centre for quiet contemplation and just an open space to relax.
  • New retail on Cambridge Street.
