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.



Planning for stage 1 in Leppington has now been finalised.


The Department worked closely with Camden Council, stakeholders and the community to take a coordinated approach to planning for new homes and essential infrastructure, to help meet local community needs.


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 community in Leppington (stage 1) will benefit from up to 2,500 new homes and the delivery of local amenities close to transport options, including:

  • a new primary and K-12 school
  • a new community centre
  • access to a Major Centre in the nearby Leppington North Precinct where jobs, shopping, entertainment, community and government services will be provided
  • proximity to the Leppington Railway Station on the South West Rail Link
  • upgrades to rail and major roads, including Camden Valley Way
  • playing fields and recreational land along Scalabrini Creek.
