The Western Sydney Aerotropolis is almost set for take-off with the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) releasing the final Precinct Plan.

Announcing the release, Minister for Planning, Anthony Roberts said the finalised plans gave the community, investors and developers the certainty they needed to plan for the future.

“The final Precinct Plan will enable the development process to begin in the Aerotropolis and kickstart the benefits and opportunities that a new international airport will bring to Western Sydney,” Mr Roberts said.

“The finalisation of the Plan for the initial precincts lays the foundation for the transformation of 6,500 hectares of land, with new homes, jobs and open spaces, supported by the right infrastructure.”

He said the Precinct Plan package included finalised plans for the Aerotropolis Core, Badgerys Creek, Northern Gateway, Agribusiness and Wianamata-South Creek precincts.

“We’ve listened to the community and the Independent Community Commissioner, and finalised these plans in line with their feedback,” he said.

Minister for Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres said feedback from the community had created a better balanced Aerotropolis plan that would create more jobs closer to where people lived.

“The revised Open Space Network will ensure more than 95 per cent of homes in the future Aerotropolis are located within 400 metres, or five minutes’ walk, of open space,” Mr Ayres said.
