Epping, New South Wales, Australia

My idea to improve this place


Epping was once a leafy suburb with beautiful old home with lots of character. The new highrise buildings are not in keeping with our suburb and are not suited to the environment. The LEP and DCP need to be adjusted to ensure future buildings fit in with the character and old world charm of Epping. Their landscaping could also be improved.

So that people could...

People are upset to see the character of Epping being lost. This would help to give Epping back its identity and character. It would help people to belong to the suburb and not feel they could be living in any city in the world.

Because I want Epping to be...

I want Epping to remain a liveable and sustainable suburb in which to live. I do not want to see Epping's character lost for ever.

    I absolutely agree. Epping should remain an attractive place to live. Multiple high rise towers with small units built on a very restricted area will simply crowd too many people into too small a space. Let us take our time and approve only those developments which will make this town more liveable and pleasant. More open spaces, plazas, specialty shops, places to work and play.

    I agree too. great suggestion. I've grown up in Epping, and now started a family. There is a real need and community desire of keeping Epping's unique character and celebrating its history. heritage and nature loving residents. personally I am concerned that if development happens too quick, Epping will become a soulless cookie cutter build of any another suburb. Hoping council, developers, urban planners hear our concerns. Agree, 'more open space, piazza, specialists shops' rather than generic copies , nicely summarised. thanks
