The changes to Estella zoning boundaries were adopted by Council on 26 July 2021. The changes are now reflected in Council's local environmental plan.

Council is preparing for new development that will complete the suburb of Estella. This will involve the vacant land located between Pine Gully Road in the west and the existing parts of Estella in the east.

The development of this area will provide new housing opportunities, complete Avocet Drive through to Pine Gully Road, create active travel links that connect the northern suburbs, as well as provide open space and a local shopping location.

The planning proposal makes a number of adjustments to the Wagga Wagga Local Environmental Plan zoning in parts of the vacant land. These changes mean the zoning will allow a neighbourhood design that matches Council’s current strategies for the growth of the city.
