The Greater Macarthur region will never be the same again with a 92-page dossier outlining the dramatic transformation earmarked for the suburbs on Sydney’s southwest outskirts.
From the rural villages of Appin, Menangle and Gilead, right through to the expanding metropolitan hubs of Campbelltown, Glenfield and Ingleburn, the Greater Macarthur 2040 Interim Plan has identified a dozen precincts for growth.
The precincts are Glenfield, Macquarie Fields, Ingleburn, Minto, Leumeah, Campbelltown, Macarthur, Glenlee, Menangle Park, Gilead, North Appin and Appin.
Across the next 20 years, the State Government envisions a potential 57,200 homes across the 12 precincts, with Planning Minister Rob Stokes formally declaring the region a growth area earlier this month.
“This is the next stage of a plan to transform southwest Sydney from a series of commuter suburbs to a coherent centre full of jobs, culture, public spaces, green and open areas,” Mr Stokes said.
“This formally recognises the guiding principles for how we develop the area in the future and ensures we deliver infrastructure like transport, utilities and parks alongside new jobs and homes.”
Developers, community groups, shopping centre owners, not-for-profit organisations and individuals have had their say on the government’s bold plans.
NewsLocal has analysed the government’s vision, the community submissions and what it all means for you in an exclusive six-part series which reveals a cutting-edge high-density proposal for Campbelltown, how the region’s unique chlamydia-free koala colony will be protected and more.
