Consider saying instead:

I haven't been there for a long time.

I haven't been there for around five years.

Or

I haven't been there in a long time.

I haven't been there in around five years.

Or

It's [=it has] been a long time since I haven't been there.

It's been around five years since I haven't been there.

Or

It's been a long time since I (last) went there.

It's been around five years since I (last) went there.
