Proposal to expand the Western Sydney Employment Area

The NSW Government has amended the State Environmental Planning Policy (Western Sydney Employment Area) 2009.

A new precinct called the Broader Western Sydney Employment Precinct has now been introduced. A Land Application Map will be updated to identify the new precinct boundary. These changes will not rezone land in the precinct.

The changes have allowed the NSW Government to dedicate 4,537 more hectares to economic growth in Western Sydney, providing the potential for more of the region's residents to work closer to home.
