Priority growth areas and precincts

We have developed a new approach to precinct planning to provide certainty and a way forward for revitalising areas of Sydney.  This is part of our work to centre the planning system around people, places, public spaces and the environment, putting greater responsibility for planning in the hands of councils and local communities.

The precinct pages in the links below will give you the latest information on the progress of each precinct.

The NSW Government has appointed Professor Roberta Ryan as the Independent Community Commissioner for the Western Sydney Aerotropolis and Orchard Hills.

Cherrybrook Precinct

We have now finalised 3 separate but related plans for the Cherrybrook Precinct:

  • Cherrybrook Precinct Place Strategy
  • Landcom’s rezoning for the Cherrybrook Station State-Significant Precinct (SSP)
  • an amendment to State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) Planning Systems.
