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.
