We are planning to better connect homes, jobs and open space close to the seven train stations between Glenfield and Macarthur, providing opportunities for people to live close to work.
Growing communities will benefit from improved public transport links and connections to nearby suburbs, creating vibrant and convenient places to live.
We have considered feedback from communities, agencies and industry groups to finalise the plans for six of the seven train station precincts.
We are also reviewing the draft Precinct Plan for Glenfield to show how it could develop into a new community.
What is the status of the plans for the Glenfield to Macarthur Urban Renewal Corridor?
The plans for the Macquarie Fields, Ingleburn, Minto, Leumeah, Campbelltown and Macarthur precincts have now been finalised.
Key changes include:
- Providing Council with flexibility to plan for parks and open space. Our investigations show that enough open space exists to meet current and future needs, but that open space can be improved and made more useable through upgraded facilities. Campbelltown Council will consider additional open space in future local planning.
- The plans recommend the inclusion of new public plazas. Council will plan for these plazas in consultation with the community.
- We are updating the Glenfield Precinct Plan in response to the proposed relocation of the Hurlstone Agricultural High School and the reconfiguration of education facilities in the area. We will exhibit the revised plan for public comment during 2018.
What happens next?
Rezoning within this precinct can now occur through:
- Planning proposals submitted by landowners to Campbelltown City Council. These proposals need to be consistent with the Greater Macarthur Growth Area Implementation Plan and relevant precinct plan;
- Council led local environmental plan amendments; or
- State Government-led planning for certain precincts.
- Once rezoning occurs, Campbelltown City Council will be responsible for implementing the precinct plan.
