Wesley Mission to go vertical in expanding village in southwest Sydney

Published on

The Not For Profit has drawn up plans to redevelop its Frank Vickery Village in Sylvania, located 20km south of Sydney’s CBD.

The village currently accommodates 220 residents in a range of studio, one- and two- bedroom apartments, with a 69-bed aged care home also on the 5.7ha site.

At present, the site is zoned for low-density housing, but in a statement to residents, Wesley Mission said it proposes to submit a Planning Proposal to Sutherland Shire Council to change the zoning “to permit higher buildings which follow the natural topography of the site.”

The operator says the new buildings will allow the village to be expanded while staying in character with the surrounding landscape.
