The Carmody family sold the land through Melbourne-based company Sunbury Hills. The sale was conducted by Biggin & Scott Land with Deloitte Real Estate.

Metropolitan Planning Authority Steve Dunn told the AFR that the Metropolitan Planning Authority was planning a precinct structure plan, in consultation with the City of Hume, to "guide development of a new community in Sunbury South".

He told the newspaper that the community was envisaged to support around 10,000 housing lots and would include a town centre, two local centres and an industrial centre to support 6,800 jobs. There would also be land set aside for schools, parks and facilities.
