The new Priority Growth Area is expected to provide up to 33,000 new homes and 30,000 new local jobs within easy access to homes.
West Appin has also been included within the proposed growth area boundary to acknowledge its long-term capacity for housing supply. Large scale land release at West Appin is not likely to be required in the short term. However, an accelerated rezoning could occur if demand for homes increases and the private sector makes the necessary supporting infrastructure commitments.
