The Minister for Planning and Public Spaces has recently announced a new approach to precinct planning in NSW. This will mean the Department, councils, State agencies and communities will work together in the development of places and planning frameworks for the South West growth area.


The Department is preparing a strategic plan for the South West Growth Area. We will work collaboratively with Camden, Campbelltown and Liverpool Councils to progress planning for the growth area.

What’s happened so far?

On 8 October 2015, the NSW Government announced a broader investigation into opportunities for new jobs and homes around the planned Western Sydney Airport in Sydney’s west.

The new Western Sydney Growth Area will guide new infrastructure investment, identify new homes and jobs close to transport, and coordinate services in the area.

What’s happening next?

We are currently at the early stages of investigations. The community and key stakeholders will be invited to view any plans that are prepared and provide feedback.
