The Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan is part of the Government’s commitment to delivering the Western Parkland City. It will protect the region’s threatened plants and animals and support the needs of the community through the creation of conservation lands and green spaces close to homes.
The population of the Western Sydney is projected to grow from 740,000 in 2016 to 1.1 million by 2036, and to well over 1.5 million by 2056.
A thriving, liveable Western Sydney needs conservation areas for the area’s native plants and animals, and publicly accessible green spaces for local communities.
The NSW Government is developing a conservation plan for Western Sydney to help balance the future needs of the community, and protect threatened plants and animals in Western Sydney for the long term.
The Terms of Reference for the Western Sydney Strategic Assessment have now been finalised.

The Plan will conserve the environment and improve biodiversity outcomes for threatened and iconic species.
