Wilton in 2040 is a place where families are thriving and businesses are flourishing. The town has grown sustainably with a strong natural environment, and jobs leveraging the town’s location relative to Wollongong and the new Western Sydney Airport. The town has excellent access to services and connections to infrastructure reinforcing Wilton as a place where families can live, work and play. Wilton is recognised as the leader in housing diversity. Wilton is a home for all.
The vision will be realised over a 20 to 30-year time frame.
There are six precincts in the Wilton Growth Area. Homes have already been constructed in Bingara Gorge and more are being planned for in South East Wilton. Other precincts within Wilton are:
Around 15,000 new homes will be built in the Wilton Growth Area over the next 20 to 30 years. The Growth Area will be focused on a new town centre which will provide shops and services for the growing community as well as employment opportunities for people living in the area.
People will be able to choose from a variety of types of homes with easy access to a vibrant town or village centre. People will be able to live near their families in places they can afford.
Each precinct will incorporate employment land including space for shops, businesses and industrial activities. The new town centre will be a lively and attractive commercial centre providing new jobs for the region.
We are working with Wollondilly Shire Council to prepare an economic development strategy that will help identify and create future employment opportunities in the area.
As new communities grow, developers will provide the infrastructure that will be needed to support this growth. Roads will be improved to ensure community safety and amenity.
Walking and cycling routes throughout the Growth Area will make it easy to access shops and services in the town centre. Leaving the car at home and using active modes of transport like walking and cycling will promote healthy lifestyles.
Much of the vegetation will be conserved to maintain biodiversity and habitat for fauna.
Biodiversity Certification of development precincts will manage the environmental impacts of development and construction of essential infrastructure.
We plan to protect the significance of heritage items and sites so that future generations can appreciate and enjoy the culture of the area.
