Key infrastructure requirements for Wilton New Town have been identified in consultation with Transport for NSW, Roads and Maritime Services and utility providers. No land will be rezoned in the Priority Growth Area until satisfactory arrangements for the appropriate supporting infrastructure are in place. 

 

The Government is investigating the creation of a Special Infrastructure Contributions (SIC) scheme for the new town. The SIC will create a framework for developers to share the costs and allows Government to coordinate delivery of major new transport and community infrastructure. 

 

The necessary infrastructure will be funded by developers at no additional cost to Government. 

 

The table below lists infrastructure projects  that have been identified to support the Wilton Priority Growth Area.
