We want to create thriving, attractive and well-connected communities, where people can live and work and have good access to public transport, community facilities, open spaces, shops and cafes.
We have worked with Walker Corporation (the former landowner), Risland (the current landowner), Wollondilly Shire Council, Transport for NSW and other state agencies on the planning for the South East Wilton Precinct.
The South East Wilton Precinct Structure Plan aims to:
- create a new village centre and primary school
- protect the environment and koala habitat
- provide open spaces and parks
- provide more public transport options
- create a mix of housing
- Provide essential infrastructure
- improve connections by extending the road network
- manage the risk of bushfires.
What’s happened so far
The plans for the South East Wilton Precinct were finalised in 2017 and the area was rezoned under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 (Growth Centres SEPP). The submissions we received during the public exhibition and the finalisation report are available on the NSW Planning Portal.
The South East Wilton Precinct Structure Plan (PDF, 3.5 MB) was exhibited in August 2022 and finalised in September 2023 as a result of the approval of the Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan.
The Sydney Western City Planning Panel approved a development application for stage 1 of the precinct in October 2019.
On 1 September 2023 the department adopted the South East Wilton Neighbourhood Plan No. 1 into the Wilton Growth Area Development Control Plan. The final document can be viewed on the NSW Planning Portal.
