The Wilton Growth Area is positioned at the junction of the Hume Motorway and Picton Road in the Wollondilly Shire Local Government Area.

 

Wilton will become a new town providing homes and jobs in the south west of the Sydney basin, with access to the beaches of Illawarra and National Parks.

 

There are seven precincts within the Wilton Growth Area. Each precinct will create thriving local communities with new homes, jobs, public transport and community facilities. 

 

Draft Wilton Growth Area Housing Complying Development Code

The draft Wilton Growth Area Housing Complying Development Code (the Code) is on public exhibition for four weeks until 20 September 2021.

 

The draft Code will:

  • be based on the Greenfield Housing Code but customised to deliver the vision for the Wilton Growth Area outlined in Wilton 2040 – a Plan for the Wilton Growth Area and the Wilton Growth Area Development Control Plan 2021.
  • be applied initially to low density residential areas in the North Wilton and South East Wilton precincts.
  • enhance and reinforce the unique landscape character and biodiversity values of Wilton and promote resilient new urban residential areas.
  • ensure every new home in low density residential areas of the Wilton Growth Area has the space for at least one tree in both the front and back yards. 
  • help to speed the delivery of new homes once a neighbourhood plan and subdivision development applications are approved in these precincts.

 

We welcome feedback on this important plan, which will help ensure Wilton has a green future.

 

We will continue to consult with stakeholders before finalising the code later in 2021.

Wilton Growth Area Development Control Plan

The Wilton Growth Area Development Control Plan (DCP) is now final, ensuring any new development is consistent with the Wilton 2040 vision of creating a liveable new place in the natural environment. 

 

The DCP gives more detailed planning and design guidelines and controls for residential development in South East Wilton and North Wilton precincts.

 

The DCP was exhibited between 7 August and 18 September 2019. A summary of the submissions and the department’s response is available in the What we heard report on the Planning Portal.

 

What happens next

The rezoning of Wilton Town Centre is anticipated to be finalised in the second half of 2021.
