This is the first of what will be a regular newsletter to community members who have subscribed for updates on the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.
If you have friends or neighbours interested in the planning for the Aerotropolis, please encourage them to sign up for updates via our website.
What we’ve heard so far
Since August, we’ve met with more than 1200 landowners and community members to talk about the Stage 1 plan, either through drop-in sessions, meetings with community groups or one-on-one meetings.
Through this consultation, you’ve raised a lot of important issues with us. These matters include:
Precinct boundaries and the sequencing of precincts being rezoned
South Creek Precinct – what the precinct will look like in the future and its boundary
Agriculture and Agribusiness Precinct – what sort of uses are likely to be seen in this precinct, how will this be different to traditional agriculture and horticulture
Alignment of transport corridors and location of future Metro stations
Water and sewer infrastructure – how this will be addressed and when will it be delivered; and
Site specific concerns, including proposals for private properties.
These matters will be carefully considered as we continue to work closely with the community and councils in planning the Aerotropolis.
Announcement of Investment Agreements
This month has seen the announcement of investment agreements for the Western Sydney Aerotropolis with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and the Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group.
The Stage 1 Aerotropolis Land Use Plan is an important part of setting the scene for promoting investment in the Western Parkland City as it demonstrates the collaboration of the three levels of government and our commitment to planning for this important business hub. More information on the investment decisions can be viewed on the Greater Sydney Commission website.
Reminder exhibition closing 2 November 2018
It’s not too late to let us know your thoughts on the Stage 1 Plan. The Stage 1 Plan is on exhibition until 2 November 2018.
We understand that for residents that have lived in this area for many years that the proposed plan puts forward change to the area. We also recognise the land use plan is still the subject of much debate and many people in the community feel very strongly over the potential for immediate personal impact that will result if the proposals in the draft plan are implemented without change.
We are committed to working with you to refine the land uses plan in 2019 and completing the precinct plans and rezoning of the three initial precincts – Northern Gateway, Aerotropolis Core and South Creek – by the end of 2019.
Everyone is encouraged to make a submission as all feedback will be considered in the next stages of our plan. By providing us with your views we can understand and respond to your concerns in the more detailed plans that will come in the future.
