Mount Gilead Stage 2 Residential Development - EPBC 2019/8587 Public Environment Report Exhibition

Monday, 14 August, 2023

Public Exhibition of Mount Gilead Stage 2 Residential Development, Gilead NSW (EPBC 2019/8587). Lendlease Communities (Figtree Hill) Pty Limited is proposing to construct a residential development at Gilead, NSW. 

The overall development will be for residential land use and is planned to consist of low and medium-density residential development of approximately 3,300 lots, retail and educational facilities and associated infrastructure, parkland, open space and biodiversity offset and environmental conservation areas.

The proposed action has been determined to be a “controlled action” under the EPBC Act and will therefore require assessment and approval by the Commonwealth Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water before it can proceed. The controlling provision under the EPBC Act is “Listed threatened species and communities” (Sections 18 and 18A) and the assessment approach is through preliminary documentation.

The draft preliminary documentation for this proposal includes the referral information and will be on public display from Monday 14th August to Friday 1st September 2023 at the following locations:

  • Campbelltown City Library – 1 Hurley Street, Campbelltown, NSW, 2560 and
  • State Library of NSW – Macquarie Street, Sydney NSW, 2000.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm (EST) on Friday 1st September 2023. To learn more, the full details are available here.
