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.


The Western Sydney Planning Partnership (Planning Partnership) is responsible for delivering the final Western Sydney Aerotropolis Planning Package and subsequent Precinct Plans for the initial precincts.

Planning Package for Western Sydney Aerotropolis

The Western Sydney Aerotropolis Planning Package has been finalised.


The final planning package includes:

  • Western Sydney Aerotropolis Plan (WSAP)
  • Western Sydney Aerotropolis Plan Finalisation Report
  • Western Sydney Aerotropolis (Aerotropolis) State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP)
  • Amendment to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000
  • New Ministerial Direction 7.8 Implementation of Western Sydney Aerotropolis Plan
  • Western Sydney Aerotropolis Development Control Plan (DCP) Phase 1

The final planning package addresses community and stakeholder feedback we received during our exhibition in 2019.

Western Sydney Aerotropolis precincts

Next Steps

The Western Sydney Planning Partnership is currently undertaking precinct planning for the initial precincts, including sequencing and staging, responding to the timing of infrastructure delivery.


Precinct Plans for the initial precincts and development contributions will be placed on public exhibition and open for community feedback before the end of 2020.

Precinct Planning Site Investigations

The Planning Partnership and Sydney Water are carrying out site investigations for the initial precincts.


Investigations began in August 2020 and are focusing on initial precincts where further land capability, biodiversity, waterway, heritage, future stormwater, wastewater and drinking water services investigations are required.


The results of these investigations will be used to develop the precinct plans for each initial precinct.


You can find out more information about these investigations by reading our Site Investigations frequently asked questions [PDF, 105KB].

Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan

The Aerotropolis will make the most of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan, a NSW and Federal Government investment program to upgrade rail and roads.


The NSW Government has committed to investment in major infrastructure including:

  • Bringelly Road upgrade
  • Elizabeth Drive
  • M12 Motorway linking the M7 Motorway to the Western Sydney International (Nancy Bird Walton) Airport
  • The Northern Road upgrade
  • Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport


A Place Infrastructure Compact (PIC) is being developed for the Aerotropolis.


The PIC will be used to develop a special infrastructure contribution under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.


The PIC will also guide the investment and staging decisions of infrastructure, utility and services to ensure the Aerotropolis growth area is adequately supported.

Community consultation

We engaged with the community and key stakeholders on the Aerotropolis though a range of engagement activities.


These engagement activities gave the community an opportunity to find out more, ask questions and provide feedback.


Our What We Heard Report and the Finalisation Report provide an overview of the feedback we received during consultation on the Stage 1 Land Use and Infrastructure Implementation Plan and the draft Western Sydney Aerotropolis Plan respectively. These documents and all submissions received are available on the Planning Portal.


We used the feedback provided by the community when finalising the Planning Package.


We also consulted with a Community Liaison Group (CLG).

Community Liaison Group

The CLG is made up of residents or individuals across the ten precincts areas of the Aerotropolis.


The CLG meets regularly, providing a forum for open dialogue between the project team working on the Aerotropolis, the community, local Councils and other stakeholders.
