The Western City & Aerotropolis Authority will generate jobs by creating high quality places focussed on job-intensive land uses. A priority will be to create knowledge precincts linking research, commercial activity and educational opportunities.
Over the next twenty years, it is estimated the eight council areas comprising the Western Parkland City will collectively grow by 500,000 residents to deliver a city with a population of 1.5 million - bigger than the current size of Adelaide. This growth needs access to high-quality jobs and training opportunities across a range of sustainable industries.
The Aerotropolis will be the catalyst for the 200,000 jobs that the three levels of government committed to creating in the Western Parkland City through the Western Sydney City Deal.
