We want to create thriving, attractive and well-connected communities, where people can live and work with good access to public transport, community facilities, open spaces, shops and cafes.
The department has worked with Walker Corporation (the former landowner), Risland (the current landowner), Wollondilly Shire Council, Transport for NSW, and other State agencies on the planning for the South East Wilton Precinct.
The current precinct structure plan for South East Wilton aims to:
- Create a new village centre and primary school
- Protect the environment and koala habitat
- Provide open spaces and parks
- Provide more public transport options
- Create a mix of housing
- Provide essential infrastructure
- Improve connections by extending the road network
- Manage the risk of bushfires
What’s happened so far?
The plans for South East Wilton were finalised in 2017 and the area was rezoned under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 (Growth Centres SEPP). The submissions received during public exhibition and finalisation report are available on the Planning Portal.
The South East Wilton Structure Plan (PDF, 1.6 MB) was updated in August 2022 as a result of the approval of the Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan.
A Development Application for Stage 1 of the precinct was approved by the Sydney Western City Planning Panel in October 2019.
A draft Neighbourhood Plan has been lodged with Wollondilly Shire Council by the proponent of the North Wilton Precinct, and is currently being assessed by Council prior to public consultation.
What's happening now?
The department proposed further changes to the South East Wilton Structure Plan and associated changes to the State Environmental Planning Policy (Precincts – Western Parkland City) 2021 (the Western Parkland City SEPP).
The department sought feedback on these proposed amendments from 12 to 26 October 2022.
All feedback received during public exhibition will help the department better understand the views of the community and inform the finalisation of the proposed amendments to the Western Parkland City SEPP.
