We are working with local councils, agencies and communities to help provide new homes in the north west of Sydney that are close to jobs, parks, schools and services.
The Department worked closely with Blacktown City Council, stakeholders and the community to take a coordinated approach to planning for more jobs, homes and essential infrastructure to help meet community needs in the North West Growth Area.
Releasing land for housing means Sydneysiders will have access to a range of homes that suit different needs, budgets and lifestyle choices. It also helps to place downward pressure on housing prices.
Marsden Park Industrial will be a major economic foundation for the North West Growth Area, providing more homes close to amenities and more local jobs for the growing community. It is anticipated that Marsden Park Industrial will provide up to 10,000 new jobs for the area.
Following extensive consultation, the draft plan was finalised in November 2010 and new planning controls were introduced to enable urban development. For more information please refer to the final planning documents below.
Marsden Park Industrial was rezoned under the Government Precinct Acceleration Protocol which allows planning and development to proceed earlier than proposed under the Government’s program, provided there is no additional cost to taxpayers.
