Western Sydney is fast becoming a place of growth, change and tremendous opportunity. 1.5 million people are expected to live the in the Western Parkland City over the next 20 years, which means employment, infrastructure, transport and utilities are a significant focus for government.
The Western City and Aerotropolis Authority (WCAA) has been tasked by the state and federal governments to design and deliver a new CBD: creating a dynamic new place for people to live, work and learn.
At its heart will be the Aerotropolis: an innovative smart city which will harness Sydney’s first 24/7 international airport to attract emerging and new industries, capture investment and drive high-value, skilled and resilient jobs in Western Sydney.
It will be home to leading advanced manufacturing, quantum, aerospace and defence industries, and an agribusiness precinct delivering a sophisticated, intense food production hub along with high-tech freight and logistics connecting Western Sydney to global markets.
It’s a new, comparative advantage for Western Sydney and will help create 200,000 jobs across the Western Parkland City.
A unique blended approach to education between industry and universities will upskill and train workers.
A citizen centric city, the new CBD will provide a high standard of living, commercial and recreational places, including development and growth in Campbelltown, Liverpool and Penrith, with major urban renewal in the Penrith to St Marys corridor.
