Delivering Bradfield City Centre

We're building Australia's newest city

Located on the doorstep of the new Western Sydney International Airport, Bradfield City Centre will become a vibrant, 24/7 global city and unlock new economic opportunities, create 10,000 more homes, and support 20,000 new jobs for the people of Western Sydney. Spanning 114 hectares, Bradfield City Centre is the first major city to be built in Australia since Canberra.

Project status: Draft Master Plan - response to submissions and assessment stage

Over the course of 2022/23, WPCA undertook a comprehensive co-design process to develop the draft Master Plan and associated technical reports. This involved extensive engagement and collaboration with partners through a formal Technical Assurance Panel (TAP).

Following endorsement from the TAP, the draft Master Plan progressed to Stage 4 of the master planning process and was on public exhibition from 5 February to 4 March 2024.

Once complete, the Master Plan will inform all future development in Bradfield City Centre.
