12 THOUSAND HOMES … that’s huge on top of all the ongoing OVERDEVELOPMENT in Wollondilly and Macarthur!
NEW SOUTH WALES GOVERNMENT OUGHT BUY THIS LAND BACK! … COMPULSORILY ACQUIRE IT AND AMALGAMATE FOR FARMLANDS TO FEED GREATER SYDNEY!
AND lease it to young Australian farmers to enter or expand because they do not have sufficient equity to sustainably acquire land!
Studies are currently underway to link Appin to the proposed Outer Sydney Orbital and Hume Highway to provide a link to the future Western Sydney Airport … it will be feeding in Badgery’s Creek to CCP Beijing …
IT’s so bad that even Wollondilly Liberal MP Nathaniel Smith has conceded that without appropriate infrastructure, the rezoning was “premature” …
Not that it is sustainable in a fragile environment …
THE DEVILOPERS …

Planning experts to consider rezoning 1200ha in Appin
The future of a sleepy suburb on Sydney’s outskirts could be determined next week, with radical plans being put forward which are earmarked to deliver a whopping 12,000 homes.
The prospect has left some in the community horrified.

One of NSW’s oldest suburbs could be radically transformed with almost 12,000 homes earmarked for the rural village of Appin, near Campbelltown.
As of the 2016 census, there are less than 1000 houses in the suburb.
The super-sized plans of three major developers, including Walker Corporation, would deliver mass development on 1176ha of relatively untouched land, with the bold proposal to be raised before a panel of planning experts next week.
The rezoning requests, lodged in 2014, were previously knocked on the head by Wollondilly Council four years ago, calling on the developers to withdraw their plans.
The council’s pleas were either ignored or refused.
Appin resident Sue Gay said fears of mass development had horrified members of the community.
“There is no strategy or overall plan for all of the area,” she said. “Where are they going to get the water from?” It is criminal what they are doing to us. Do it in an aligned approach and think about the people that live here.”
Studies are currently underway to link Appin to the proposed Outer Sydney Orbital and Hume Highway, which would provide a direct passage to the future Western Sydney Airport.
“Council has a strong strategic direction that we have been quite clear on – that council does not support growth in the Greater Macarthur, specifically the Appin area, until after 2036,” Wollondilly Mayor Matthew Deeth said.
Wollondilly Liberal MP Nathaniel Smith said without appropriate infrastructure, the rezoning was “premature”.
Walker Corporation, who is currently developing in Wilton New Town, is wishing to deliver 4000 homes on 525ha referred to as ‘Appin Vale’.
Ingham Property Group and Mir Group wish to pave the way for 4000 homes on an 368ha Appin Rd precinct known as ‘North Appin’, while Mir Group is also requesting the rezoning of the 244ha ‘West Appin’ precinct on Wilton Rd which could house 3500 homes.
A Mir Group spokesman declined to comment but indicated it was unlikely the company would be represented at the panel meeting.
The rezoning requests will be discussed by the four-member Wollondilly Local Planning Panel on Thursday, which will provide a recommendation to Wollondilly Council.
