Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which this plan applies. We acknowledge and pay our respect to Elders past and present of the Dharug, Gundungurra and Dharawal nations.

The Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan (CPCP) facilitates growth in Western Sydney to 2056 and beyond, and delivers important development and biodiversity outcomes.

This plan will contribute to the Western Parkland City by supporting the delivery of housing, jobs and infrastructure while protecting important biodiversity including threatened plants and animals.

What's happening now?

The department has released the draft Caring for Country Strategy – Aboriginal Outcomes Strategy and is seeking feedback from Western Sydney’s Aboriginal communities. Join us for an online information session at 1pm on Thursday 8 December 2022 to hear more about the draft Caring for Country Strategy.

The department has also released the draft CPCP Research Program Implementation Strategy and is seeking feedback from conservation and restoration experts or knowledge holders in research, government, industry and the community.

Both strategies are open for feedback until 24 February 2023.
