This draft Plan sets out aspirations and proposals for Greater Sydney’s West Central District, which includes the local government areas of Blacktown, Cumberland (parts of the former Auburn, Parramatta and Holroyd), Parramatta (parts of the former Parramatta, The Hills, Auburn, Holroyd and Hornsby) and The Hills.
This draft District Plan is on formal public exhibition until the end of March 2017, and will be finalised towards the end of 2017 to allow as many people as possible to provide input.
The West Central District sits at Greater Sydney’s geographic and demographic heart. It offers a home to a great diversity of people and cultures, drawing on its heritage as Australia’s first seat of government and now offering a world leading biomedical hub alongside business, administrative and innovative jobs within a landscape of regional parks, large waterways and scenic rural beauty. Our work on this draft District Plan builds on the District’s characteristics, while drawing on a robust body of technical material that looks into Greater Sydney’s changing demographics, economy, housing, open spaces and many other characteristics. It also incorporates feedback garnered through our #GreaterSydney engagement during 2016.
