How is the Aerotropolis different to the Western Parkland City?
The Western Parkland City is made up on the council areas of Penrith, Liverpool, Campbelltown, Hawkesbury, Wollondilly, Camden, Fairfield and Blue Mountains, and incorporates the existing centres of Liverpool, Greater Penrith and Campbelltown‑Macarthur, with the new Airport and Aerotropolis geographically at its centre.
The vision for the Western Parkland City builds on the area’s existing stunning natural beauty, vibrant communities, and economic prosperity.
The future Western Parkland City will be one of Australia’s most connected cities. In an emerging 30-minute city, innovative public transport, aviation and digital infrastructure will bring residents closer to jobs, services, education and the world.
The Western Parkland City will be linked globally and locally, with a new airport, new metro rail, bus and road connections.
The Airport and Aerotropolis will attract infrastructure, investment and knowledge-intensive jobs, and the benefits will flow into health and education, retail, hospitality, and industrial activities that will power the city.
Residents of the Western Parkland City will have access to the best in education and skills training opportunities. A new university, schools and VET facilities will align with the high-skilled businesses and industries of the Aerotropolis. This ensures locals are skilled and ready to take full advantage of the job opportunities created in the new city.
