The vision for Greater Sydney as a metropolis of three cities – the Western Parkland City, the Central River City and the Eastern Harbour City and a 30-minute city – means residents in the Western City District will have quicker and easier access to a wider range of jobs, housing types and activities. This vision will improve the District’s lifestyle and environmental assets.
This will be achieved by:
- Creating a once-in-a-generation economic boom with the Western Sydney Airport and Badgerys Creek Aerotropolis bringing together infrastructure, businesses and knowledge-intensive jobs
- Building on the Western Sydney City Deal to transform the Western City District over the next 20 to 40 years by building on natural and community assets and developing a more contained Western City District with a greater choice of jobs, transport and services aligned with growth
- Delivering the first stage of the North South Rail Link
- Collaborating and building strong relationships between Liverpool, Greater Penrith and Campbelltown-Macarthur reinforced by the emerging Badgerys Creek Aerotropolis forming a unique metropolitan cluster
- Providing major transport links for people and freight by unprecedented transport investments
- Developing a range of housing, providing access to public transport and infrastructure including schools, hospitals and community facilities
- Linking walking and cycling paths, bushland and a green urban landscape framed by the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the Scenic Hills and Western Sydney Parklands
- Enhancing and protecting South Creek, Georges River and Hawkesbury-Nepean river systems
- Mitigating the heat island effect and providing cooler places by extending urban tree canopy and retaining water in the landscape
- Protecting the District’s natural landscapes, heritage and tourism assets, unique rural areas and villages
- Protecting the environmental, social and economic values of the Metropolitan Rural Area.
