We are working with Wollondilly Council on plans for a new town at Wilton. Following consultation, the Minister for Planning has now announced that Wilton New Town will be declared a priority growth area.
This will be formalised through an amendment to State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006.
The new town will be a self-contained community of approximately 16,000 homes and employment areas. At its heart, a strategic town centre with a full range of health, community, retail and commercial uses will grow over time.
The creation of a new major town centre will provide local employment opportunities. An employment area at Maldon will also be developed.
Key road infrastructure to support growth at Wilton will be provided by the private sector at no additional cost to Government.
We have prepared a community update which provides more detail on our planning for the area.
Community input is an important part of the planning process for Wilton New Town. We would like to thank everyone who made a submission on the proposals for the new town as part of our consultation on the Greater Macarthur Land Release Investigation Area Preliminary Strategy and Action Plan.
A summary of the consultation feedback received is available to download. This feedback will inform our work to finalise a Land Use and Infrastructure Strategy for the new town. These plans will be available for community consultation in the coming months.
