Oran Park Town Project

The former motor racing track and surrounding grazing land are being redeveloped into Sydney's newest town, located between Camden and Liverpool. The project is a joint venture between Greenfields Development Company Pty Ltd, and Landcom. Oran Park Town will eventually contain around 5,700 residential homes, three K- 12 schools (both public and private), seniors living facilities, around 18 hectares of employment land and a 30 hectare retail, commercial and administrative precinct.

The $50 million first phase of Oran Park Town included upfront delivery of a school site, a church site, a 43 home display village, road infrastructure, playing fields, cycle paths, a seniors living precinct and the first commercial building in the town centre.
 
Douglas Partners has been the geotechnical and environmental consultants on the project since the rezoning in 2006. Oran Park Town was rezoned in a record 16 months, as gazettal of the rezoning occurred at the same time as the Development Control Plan and Council’s Section 94 Contributions Plan – which typically follow a year or more after the rezoning. Working within tight time frames in a collaborative environment with a number of other consultants,  Douglas Partners was able to produce a land capability study for the rezoning in record time.
 
Since preparation of the original land capability assessment, Douglas Partners has been involved with the preparation of pavement thickness designs for the subdivision's roads, lot classifications, ongoing environmental assessments and salinity investigations for the subdivision. 
 
Commenting on the project, DP's Campbelltown branch manager Chris Kline noted that "The first stage of the land release recently generatedheadlines, with prospective buyers camping out for up to a week to secure the opportunity to buy on opening day." 220 lots have been sold in the first 6 months. Chris added “We are looking forward to working with Greenfields Development Company and Landcom on the next phase of Oran Park Town.”
