The Western Sydney Aerotropolis will become a thriving economic centre in Western Sydney.

 

Benefiting from proximity to the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport, the Aerotropolis will contribute towards 200,000 new jobs in the Western Parkland City and become a high-skill jobs hub across aerospace and defence, manufacturing, healthcare, freight and logistics, agribusiness, education and research industries.

 

What's happening now?

  • In response to requests for further information regarding the draft precinct plans, the Department is inviting you to speak one-to-one with a member of our Aerotropolis planning team between Monday 22 February – Wednesday 24 February and Monday 1 March – Friday 5 March about what the plans mean for you, and to hear any comments or concerns you might have. Please register for a session
  • To allow sufficient time for people to prepare submissions after these sessions the closing date for public exhibition of the draft Aerotropolis Precinct Plan, which includes the Aerotropolis Core, Badgerys Creek, Wianamatta-South Creek, Agribusiness and Northern Gateway Precincts has been extended until 12 March 2021.
  • We are also offering two people from the Northern Gateway Precinct an opportunity to join our Community Liaison Group (CLG), made up of residents drawn from across the ten precincts areas of the Aerotropolis. The CLG meets regularly (usually on a monthly basis), providing a forum for open dialogue between the project team working on the Aerotropolis, the community, local Councils and other stakeholders. We’d welcome representation from the Northern Gateway Precinct, which to date has not nominated a representative, so if you’d like to register your interest or find out more, please email us on engagement@ppo.nsw.gov.au

Aerotropolis Core, Badgerys Creek and Wianamatta-South Creek Precincts

Planning for the Aerotropolis thinks about the landscape in which it sits and how we can connect a future thriving centre to the area’s water, culture, environment, landscape and economy. 

We’ve integrated planning for three precincts to support this landscape-led approach.
