NSW Department of Planning and Environment

South West Growth Area

We are helping to build new communities in precincts like Oran Park, Turner Road, Leppington, East Leppington, Austral and Leppington NorthEdmondson ParkCatherine Field, Glenfield and South Creek West. We are also planning for new communities in Lowes Creek Maryland.

Our work will help to better connect new suburbs with the planned Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek and the broader Western Sydney Employment Area. This includes making the most of the NSW Government’s investment in major infrastructure like the Camden Valley Way, Bringelly Road, Northern Road upgrades and the South West Rail Link.

Releasing more land for housing will mean Sydneysiders have access to a range of homes that suit different needs, budgets and lifestyle choices. It also helps to place downward pressure on housing prices.

We are also making sure there’s funding for essential services including main roads, water mains and sewer carriers. The new plans we are developing will help to provide more certainty for the community, businesses and local government on timings for land release. Detailed planning for Stage 1 of Leppington has now also been finalised.


We are working with local councils and communities to help provide new homes in the south west of Sydney that are close to jobs, parks, schools and amenities.
