Wilton 2040

Wilton Growth Area

The vision

In 2040, Wilton will be a landmark area in the Western Parkland City where the local community and businesses flourish. Wilton will have grown sustainably, adapting to changes in community expectations and taking advantage of employment and transport innovations.

Wilton will be known for its protection and conservation of the natural environment, particularly its koala corridor, enhancing the experience of living and working in Wilton. It will offer a key location for job opportunities that benefit from direct access to the Greater Macarthur area, Wollongong and the new Western Sydney Airport.

The draft Wilton 2040 plan was exhibited in 2018. After considering submissions, we adopted the Wilton 2040 plan on 28 September 2018.

The supporting documents and submissions on Wilton 2040 are available on the NSW Planning Portal.

What’s happened so far

Significant progress has been made to plan for and deliver the growth area since the publication of Wilton 2040. This includes rezoning the North Wilton and Wilton Town Centre precincts, granting funds for road upgrades and updates to other key infrastructure.

Read the community update

We collaborated with Wollondilly Shire Council and other stakeholders to prepare the Wilton Growth Area Development Control Plan (DCP).

The DCP contains detailed development controls for urban development in the Wilton Growth Area. This includes in the rezoned South East Wilton and North Wilton precincts, which will be the first stages of development for the growing Wilton community.

The Wilton Growth Area Development Control Plan is available on the NSW Planning Portal.

The Wilton Town Centre Precinct planning controls were approved in 2021 and came into effect on 30 June 2023. This precinct is an important part of the Wilton Growth Area as a place for future residents to shop, work, learn and relax. The Wilton Town Centre Precinct will provide community facilities such as a school, public transport, a library, a medical centre and parks.

What’s happens next

In collaboration with the council, we will undertake precinct planning and the potential future rezoning of the Wilton West, Wilton South and Maldon precincts. Wollondilly Shire Council will lead the planning, with support from the department to resolve complex issues, determine appropriate timing of development and infrastructure, and together we will drive a quality place outcome. 

We are also working with Wollondilly Shire Council, landowners and key state agencies to review the Wilton Growth Area Infrastructure and Phasing Plan. The timing of infrastructure will be aligned to support development on the ground as housing is delivered.
