The Western Sydney Aerotropolis will become a thriving economic centre in Western Sydney.
Benefiting from proximity to the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport, the Aerotropolis will contribute towards 200,000 new jobs in the Western Parkland City and become a high-skill jobs hub across aerospace and defence, manufacturing, healthcare, freight and logistics, agribusiness, education and research industries.
The Western Sydney Airport is the catalyst for much of Western Sydney’s future urbanisation. The Aerotropolis will be the beating heart of the Western Parkland City, connecting to Greater Parramatta and the Harbour CBD to realise the vision for Greater Sydney as a metropolis of three cities.
Planning for and around the Aerotropolis involves a number of statutory plans and strategic policies.
Draft precinct plans establish the strategic vision and general objectives, proposed land uses, performance criteria for development of land, and the approach to both infrastructure and water cycle management.
Planning for the Aerotropolis thinks about the landscape in which it sits and how we can connect a future thriving centre to the area’s water, culture, environment, landscape and economy.
We’ve integrated planning for three precincts to support this landscape-led approach.
Up to 10,000 jobs will be created by 2056 with the creation of a world-class agribusiness precinct, supporting the production and value-adding of sustainable, high quality fresh produce and pre-prepared consumer foods.
A hub for manufacturing, warehouse and distribution functions, providing important links north into the greater Penrith area via the major transport infrastructure of the metro, motorway, freight, main road, strategic bus way and cycleway connections.
The proposed Special Infrastructure Contribution (SIC) for Aerotropolis could provide up to $1.1 billion in developer funding for vital infrastructure.
The precinct plans are now on exhibition for community and stakeholder feedback until 12 March 2021.
