Mamre Road Precinct has been introduced as a precinct in the Western Sydney Employment Area.


The draft rezoning package for Mamre Road Precinct was on exhibition between 20 November and 18 December 2019.


The draft package included a draft structure plan, discussion paper and proposed zoning maps.


The discussion paper details changes to the State Environmental Planning Policy (Western Sydney Employment Area) 2009 (WSEA SEPP) that will help to facilitate industrial development in the Mamre Road Precinct.


The proposed changes to the WSEA SEPP and introduction of the Mamre Road Precinct structure plan will ensure that:

  • The precinct becomes a warehousing industrial hub providing around 17,000 new jobs in Western Sydney;
  • Surrounding rural residential areas are protected from industrial activities with buffers between homes and the industrial hub;
  • Built and natural heritage are protected with the preservation of approximately 95 hectares of environmentally sensitive land, including Cumberland Plain Woodland;
  • Over 50 hectares of open space, recreation areas, cycle and walking paths in the precinct, including alongside South Creek; and
  • Critical transport corridors are preserved and potential opportunities for an intermodal terminal are explored.


The draft rezoning package and all submissions are available on the Planning Portal.
