Glenfield is set to become South West Sydney’s premier regional sporting and education destination. 


Glenfield’s heritage will be protected and enhanced, with existing schools retained and with investment in the future of Hurlstone Agricultural High School to continue a strong legacy of contribution to agricultural education.  


What's happening now

The draft Glenfield Place Strategy was exhibited for feedback from 9 December 2020 to 12 February 2021.


We received 100 submissions, ran two webinars and 33 one-to-one sessions with members of the community. The issues raised included:  

  • the importance of managing traffic and ensuring adequate car parking;  
  • ensuring infrastructure is planned to support development;  
  • proposed heights of buildings;  
  • the importance of open space, including quality open space with good amenities; and  
  • improvements to cycle and pedestrian links.  


We are analysing all submissions received and considering how the final Glenfield Place Strategy can be improved based on this feedback.  


You can read the submissions on the Planning Portal


The final proposed changes will then be forwarded to the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces for further consideration and determination later this year. If the amendments are approved, they will come into force and enable the future development of Glenfield.  


Glenfield Place Strategy

The proposed precinct rezoning will deliver:  

  • Approximately 50ha of land retained for Hurlstone Agricultural High School’s agricultural purposes; 
  • Up to six new playing fields, including 30ha of additional accessible open space; 
  • A plan for green links connecting open spaces, parks and plazas for everyone to enjoy over the next 20 to 30 years;  
  • A new town centre with heights up to 12 storeys; 
  • Identification of sites for new health and community facilities within the town centre; 
  • An Urban Design Strategy that delivers appropriate interfaces to the schools including; building setbacks, reduced heights (two to three storeys) and public access; 
  • Shared streets which prioritise pedestrian and active transport; and 
  • Improved cycleway connections and upgrades to regional active transport links
