Preparing the plan

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 have also recently updated the minimum lot sizes for semi-detached dwellings in residential areas in the South West Growth Areas so that we can provide more housing choice and cater to different needs. You can view the update on the Plans Policies website: Proposed changes to minimum lot sizes for semi-detached dwellings in residential areas of the North West and South West Priority Growth Areas.


We are helping to build new communities in precincts like Oran Park, Turner Road, East Leppington, Austral and Leppington North, Edmondson Park, Catherine Fields 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.


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.
