Draft south west district plan: co-creating a Greater Sydney

21 Nov 2016
Description

This draft District Plan sets out aspirations and proposals for Greater Sydney’s South West District, which includes the local government areas of Camden, Campbelltown, Fairfield, Liverpool and Wollondilly. It has been developed by the Greater Sydney Commission.

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.

This draft District Plan proposes a 20-year vision for the South West District, which includes the local government areas of Camden, Campbelltown, Fairfield, Liverpool and Wollondilly. It has been developed by the Greater Sydney Commission in consultation with State agencies and the community, with technical input from councils. The South West District will transform over the next 20 years. It was one of the first districts to be settled in the early colony and is now one of Greater Sydney’s fastest growing districts. The investment in the Western Sydney Airport will be driven by the Australian and NSW Governments with local government through the Western Sydney City Deal. With the Airport’s associated transport infrastructure and the growing employment hubs in Campbelltown- Macarthur and Liverpool, more of the District’s people will be able to work closer to where they live and reduce the time they spend commuting. 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.
