We have prepared Greater Macarthur 2040: An Interim Plan for the Greater Macarthur Growth Area which sets out the strategic planning framework for the Growth Area.
When finalised, Greater Macarthur 2040 will guide precinct planning within the Growth Area.
The Greater Macarthur 2040 plan highlights aim to:
We declared Greater Macarthur as a Growth Area in 2019. An amendment was made to the State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) (2006) (Growth Centres SEPP) to identify the Greater Macarthur Growth Area.
The Growth Area recognises and builds the critical role Campbelltown-Macarthur metropolitan cluster in providing jobs and services for the broader South Western Sydney area. It will also provide greater certainty about how we will work strategically to balance new jobs, housing and public spaces with important environmental protections.
You can view the submissions and documents on the Planning Portal.
A new Ministerial Direction will enable the NSW Government’s commitment to protect the South Western Sydney koala population and to align planning proposals with the vision for Greater Macarthur 2040.
We will work collaboratively with Campbelltown and Wollondilly Councils to finalise Greater Macarthur 2040 and provide support to both councils in undertaking the detailed planning and rezoning of land within the growth area.
We are investigating establishing a planning panel for Greater Macarthur which will provide independent advice to the Minister for Planning.
