THE $7 million housing development at Maclean has been rebooted with new owners at the reins.

When former developers of Pipers Glen Estate, Eastcoast Developers, went into receivership, Sydney-based developers Smith Group got wind of the site and took over in April last year.

Smith Group director Frank Hupp said they had ignited a totally new design and awaited council approval to get the development of 300 dwellings under way.

"Our first lot of housing is 36 dwelling houses and three dual occupancies which we hope to get approval for and commence with the sales and marketing later this year," Mr Hupp said.

With eight stages altogether, the 15ha area is set to be completely developed in five to eight years.

"I think this will bring some good urban planning and architecture to Maclean as well as a great lifestyle and amenities," Mr Hupp said.

"It will be beneficial to the area in terms of employment and all the businesses around the precinct.

"We're also pitching to local builders as well."

House and land packages in the estate will be sold before construction and Mr Hupp said there had already been some interest from buyers.

"We've had quite a few people registering their interest through the website and also people driving past.

"It's an exciting project for everyone."

When Smith Group took over, the land already had various approvals from Clarence Valley Council and Smith Group lodged fresh plans over top.

"What we have planned is far more exciting than what was going to happen," Mr Hupp said.

The estate is planned for the land off Rannoch Ave and Hogues Ln.

You can view the development application at the Grafton and Maclean council offices until June 20, from 8.30am-4pm.
