The Western Sydney Aerotropolis is set for take-off after the NSW Government today released the final Precinct Plan which will support more than 100,000 jobs and 11,400 new homes.

 

Minister for Planning and Minister for Homes Anthony Roberts said the finalised plans give the community, investors and developers the certainty they need to plan for the future.

 

“The final Precinct Plan will enable the development process to begin in the Aerotropolis, and kick start the benefits and opportunities that a new international airport will bring to Western Sydney,” Mr Roberts said.

 

“The finalisation of the plan for the initial precincts lays the foundation for the transformation of 6,500 hectares of land, with new homes, jobs and open spaces, supported by the right infrastructure.”

 

The package released today includes finalised plans for the Aerotropolis Core, Badgerys Creek, Northern Gateway, Agribusiness and Wianamata-South Creek precincts following extensive consultation.

 

Mr Roberts said developer contributions under the special infrastructure contribution framework will fund up to $1.1 billion in infrastructure like roads, public transport, health facilities and schools, to support the new city.

 

“The Aerotropolis will be our newest, thriving commercial city to rival the world’s greatest, that’s why we took time to get the planning right, setting us up for success over the decades to come, ” he said.

 

“We’ve listened to the community and the Independent Community Commissioner, and finalised these plans in line with their feedback.”

 

Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said the feedback from the community has created a better balanced Aerotropolis plan, that will create more jobs closer to where people live.

 

“This is a once-in-a generation opportunity to deliver a thriving new city for Western Sydney,” Mr Ayres said.

 

“Infrastructure investment in the airport, roads and the new Metro will make the Aerotropolis one of the best-connected areas in the country, making the Western Parkland City the best place to live, work and invest in for generations to come.

 

“The revised Open Space Network will ensure more than 95 per cent of homes in the future Aerotropolis are located within 400 metres, or five minutes walk of open space.”
