Expanded Authority to deliver vision for Western Parkland City


NSW is experiencing unprecedented change.

But with change comes opportunity and as we look to the future, we need cities that are resilient and sustainable; advanced yet inclusive of culture, environments and people. Places that can offer new ways to live, work and learn, harnessing the energy of local industry while attracting global investment and knowledge.

The Western Parkland City (WPC) is one such place of opportunity. It's the economic powerhouse of Greater Sydney; home to leaders in manufacturing, freight, health, tourism and agribusiness and thriving SMEs.

Its future will be fast-tracked with the establishment of the Western Parkland City Authority (WPCA) – an expansion of the existing Western City & Aerotropolis Authority to better enable cross-government collaboration and more streamlined master planning, investment attraction and community engagement.

We will consolidate existing obligations, activities and teams from within Treasury and the Greater Sydney Commission and continue to build on our success in key areas of smart city planning, investment attraction, education reform and connectivity.

Our goal remains the same: to realise the full potential of the WPC as a high skills employment centre and catalyst for economic development and recovery.
