Why was Western City & Aerotropolis Authority established?
Capitalising on the development of the new airport, the aerotropolis will become the City’s fourth metropolitan centre, joining Liverpool, Campbelltown-Macarthur and Greater Penrith as the hubs of the Western Parkland City. It will support new jobs, health, education and lifestyle opportunities across the 11,200-hectare Aerotropolis precinct.
The Western Sydney & Aerotropolis Authority is responsible for master planning initially three key zones: the Aerotropolis Core - a 114-hectare parcel of commonwealth land to the south of the Aerotropolis, The Agri-business zone to the west and the Northern Gateway, aptly located to the north of the precinct.
The Western City & Aerotropolis Authority is also responsible for attracting investment in advanced manufacturing and research with a focus on Space, Aerospace and Defence industries to ensure the Aerotropolis provides the best opportunities in these growing and high technology industries for people living and working in Western Sydney.
The Agri-business zone will take advantage of proximity to the new airport to attract value adding investment and world class logistics to the regions food production capabilities and enhance the regions export base.
