The Sydenham to Bankstown Corridor Strategy provides a planned approach to growth, with infrastructure delivery and development co-ordinated along the corridor.


The Strategy plans for new homes and jobs over the next 20 years and builds on the Sydney Metro City and Southwest project.


There are 11 station precincts within the corridor. They are already great places to live, and each has its own unique qualities. This Strategy will enhance the precincts by: valuing neighbourhood character, renewing town centres, providing improved open spaces and community services and facilities.


Exhibition on the revised draft Strategy closed on 3 September. We are now considering the community submissions and working on the Final Strategy. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.


Our vision for Wiley Park:

  • A great place for families with a range of new and existing housing, good access to schools and improved public open space.
  • New and improved pedestrian and cycle access to Lakemba and Punchbowl will be facilitated by the revitalisation of The Boulevarde.
  • New high quality showroom developments on King Georges Road will provide an alternative focus more suited to heavy vehicular traffic.
  • The potential for a new linear park along the rail line could provide a new and interesting place for leisure and recreation.

The following key actions will be delivered in the next 12 months:

Action Description
Design of GreenWay South West The Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E) is preparing a concept landscape master plan for a shared pedestrian and cycle link and linear park should surplus rail land become available.
Public Domain and Station Access Plan Sydney Metro will prepare a Public Domain and Station Access Plan for improved station design, accessibility and interchange with other modes of transport. The new metro station at Wiley ;Park will provide improved pedestrian and bicycle access.
Finalisation of the Strategy and Local Planning Direction DP&E will finalise the Strategy including a local planning direction (a Section 9.1 Direction) to guide future development.
Special Infrastructure Contribution DP&E is preparing a draft Special Infrastructure Contribution plan (SIC) to identify the regional infrastructure improvements required to support growth in the Corridor. The SIC levy will fund a range of community, transport and open space infrastructure.
Planning for Schools The Department of Education will identify locations for new or expanded schools within the corridor based on the growth proposed in the Strategy.
Precinct Support Scheme Funding DP&E will provide funding to Councils through the Precinct Support Scheme to improve amenity and infrastructure within the Corridor.
Canterbury Road Review A review of planning controls along Canterbury Road has commenced and is expected to be concluded this year.

Next steps 

We will use community feedback to produce the final Strategy. Once finalised, we will continue to work with stakeholders to deliver the Strategy and plans over the coming years.


Previous feedback

We released the initial draft Strategy and precinct plans in October 2015. Over the past 18 months we’ve also been talking and listening to community feedback to develop the revised draft strategy. You told us that:

  • Increased housing development is generally supported on Shadforth Street and Cornelia Street between Edna Street and Lakemba Street.
  • Shop top housing on King Georges Road north to Edna Street and medium rise housing on Urunga Parade and Tucker Street could be extended.
  • A pedestrian bridge between Wiley Park station and the eastern side of King Georges Road is needed.
  • Improvements to existing green open space and pedestrian and cycle connections are needed. 
  • Good design of new apartment development is important.
More detailed information on your feedback can be found in the Wiley Park Station Precinct Plan.
