Construction of the Airport will allow for opportunities to better connect new suburbs and employment areas, creating a vibrant new community.

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.

Aerotropolis planning package finalised

The Aerotropolis Planning Package and supporting technical studies for the initial precincts was finalised on 25 March 2022.

The Planning Package includes the following documents:

You can read the submissions, Finalisation Report and supporting documentation, including a response to the submissions received on the Planning Portal.

What's happening now?

We are working closely with Councils and industry stakeholders to further refine the draft Phase 2 DCP in response to submissions received. The draft Phase 2 DCP will be finalised in the coming months.

We continue to work with Liverpool City Council and Penrith City Council to finalise their contributions plans in 2022. As an interim measure, Councils can enter into Voluntary Planning Agreements with developers until the local contributions plans are finalised.
