Gobbagombalin, already one of the fastest growing population areas in regional NSW, could expand significantly if a new subdivision is approved by Wagga City Council.
The 204-lot subdivision was lodged by Dennis Trading Pty Ltd, a family owned grain transport business with its office and a depot south-west of Gobbagombalins current housing.
If approved, the subdivision would occur over eight stages of 17 to 30 lots across a triangular area covering almost 23.3 hectares between Old Narrandera and Harris roads.
The area stretches from the Estella Rise housing development to near the edge of Charles Sturt University.
The subdivisions estimated cost was nominated as more than $6.1 million.
A spokesperson for Dennis Trading declined to comment on the application.
The company has a depot, grain silos and an office near the proposed subdivision on Old Narrandera Road.
The allotments range in size from 660 to 2185 square metres due to the size of the allotments it is anticipated that the subdivision will accommodate predominately dwelling houses, however some allotments would be of adequate size to support dual occupancy developments, the development application stated.
The application called for the extension of paved roads that have already been built in Gobbagombalin to service new and pending houses and which abruptly end at the fence line.
An additional nine new public roads would also be constructed, the application stated.
The proposal would require the removal of approximately 214 trees, 32 of which would be prescribed trees.
The application included documentation from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage stating that the area had no sites of Aboriginal significance.
Wagga Councils city strategy manager Tristan Kell told an Estella residents' meeting earlier in the year that suburbs north of Wagga were second only to Tweed in NSW regional population growth.
Residents told Mr Kell that infrastructure was not keeping up with the population and he admitted it could have been managed better.
