Hundreds of new industrial and logistics jobs are coming to Western Sydney, following approval of the first stage a major development in Kemps Creek.
Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade and Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said the $341 million Aspect Industrial Estate would create hundreds of jobs on the doorstep of the new Western Sydney Airport, with links to major road networks.
“This is a major win for Western Sydney, which marks the start of a wave of new jobs in logistics, manufacturing and construction ahead of the new airport opening in 2026,” Mr Ayres said.
“Today’s approval enables construction to begin on the first stage of the industrial estate, involving two buildings for warehousing and industrial uses, car parking and cafe.
“Around 130 construction jobs will be created and a further 387 operational jobs once the buildings are up and running next year.”
Minister for Planning and Minister for Homes Anthony Roberts said today’s decision also included approval of the overall concept plan for the entire site.
“A further nine buildings are being proposed but they will be required to be rigorously assessed separately, before each stage can progress,” Mr Roberts said.
“If all stages of the project are approved, more than 1,700 jobs will be created in total, which are closer to home for Western Sydney residents.”
Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies welcomed the approval.
“As more projects like this one take off, we’ll see more investment in warehousing and logistics, aerospace and defence, manufacturing, healthcare, agribusiness, education and research industries,” Mrs Davies said.
