Delivering for the Western Parkland City
The Western City & Aerotropolis Authority’s Strategy, 'Delivering the Western Parkland City' (PDF, 13 MB) , has been released and will guide the Authority as it continues to deliver Sydney’s third city.
The Strategy, released at the Authority's Industry Symposium, has been designed to meet the commitments made by the NSW Government and the commitments listed in the Western City District Plan and the Western Sydney City Deal.
Western City & Aerotropolis Authority Chair Jennifer Westacott said with the Strategy in place the Authority now has the framework to create one of the most liveable and dynamic parts of Australia and deliver an additional 200,000 jobs in the Western Parkland City.
"We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to shape the transformation of Sydney's third city," Ms Westacott said.
"The Western Parkland City is an area of unique heritage and extraordinary natural and cultural assets. When combined with Sydney's first 24/7 international airport the opportunities are clear to see."
To deliver the Western Parkland City and meet the NSW Government's employment target the Authority's Strategy has four key focus areas:
- Economy & Jobs within the Five Key Precincts;
- Industry Led National Skills & Training Ecosystem;
- Great Places within a 30 Minute City, Supporting a 24/7 international airport; and
- Mobility, Connectivity & Systems.
Western City & Aerotropolis Authority CEO Sam Sangster said the development of the Western Parkland City will be a key driver of economic growth in NSW and the nation.
"The Industry Symposium has shown there is incredible interest in the Aerotropolis, with all 18 foundation partners keen to learn more about the plans for the area and discuss their vision for the Western Parkland City," Mr Sangster said.
The Authority is committed to the directions set out in the Strategy and will work with key agencies across government to deliver the vision.
