The Aerotropolis Core is the City Centre for the Aerotropolis, complementing the metropolitan cluster of centres including Penrith, Liverpool and Campbelltown. The Aerotropolis Core is a Parkland City in the true sense, with a dense urban neighbourhood focused on both the new metro station and WIanamatta-South Creek creek system. Thompsons Creek will form the regional park, complemented by a network of corridors associated with retained creeks. It has the capacity to accommodate 50,000 to 60,000 jobs.
The Badgerys Creek precinct is entirely employment focused. It will complement the role of the business park within the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport as well as the Northern Gateway employment functions. Flanked by Badgerys Creek and the Wianamatta-South Creek, these major green corridors will provide amenity for future workers. Centres providing conveniences will help to activate these corridors and the employment zone. The precinct will comprise logistics, commercial industry, high technology industry and associated employment uses. Up to 11,000 jobs will be located across the precinct by 2056.
The Wianamatta-South Creek precinct is defined by the Environment and Recreation zone established by the Western Sydney Aerotropolis Plan. It accommodates a range of environmental and recreation functions, including water flows associated with the creek environment, ecology and biodiversity functions, walking paths and separate bike routes, as well as contained areas for active recreation, particularly focused around the Thompsons Creek regional park.
The Department is preparing a Wianamatta-South Creek Delivery Strategy that will set out how the area’s trees, open space and creeks are managed now and into the future, including by proposing access, ownership and management arrangements.
