NSW Department of Planning and Environment

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


The Department worked closely with Camden, Campbelltown and Liverpool City Councils, stakeholders, and the community to take a coordinated approach to planning for new homes and essential infrastructure, to help meet community needs in East Leppington.


Releasing land for housing means Sydneysiders will 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.


The new revitalised community at East Leppington will benefit from up to 4,450 new homes and the delivery of local amenities close to transport options, including:

  • A new local centre and village centre
  • 26 hectares of open space and recreation areas
  • new primary school and community centre
  • retention of Scenic Hills area
  • upgrades to major roads, including Camden Valley Way and Denham Court Road
  • Leppington House archaeological site protected as a local park
  • protection of Existing Native Vegetation, Cumberland Plain Woodland and a threatened species.
  • improved connections to encourage walking and cycling.

East Leppington will benefit from its close proximity to Leppington Station and proposed Leppington Major Centre, which will provide access to jobs, shopping, entertainment, community and government services.
