South West Sydney is experiencing unprecedented population growth, and the Greater Sydney Commission projects that the Western Parkland City will need to accommodate a population of more than 1.5 million people by 2036.
We are leading the way to proactively plan for and capitalise on the opportunities that come with extensive growth, while responsibly considering, conserving and enhancing the historic and natural assets that make our city unique.
We see a future that takes full advantage of Campbelltown’s geographical location and embraces its history, while celebrating the opportunities that modernisation offers. We have engaged with community, industry and Government to prepare an evidence-based Reimagining Campbelltown City Centre Master Plan(44MB, PDF) that is futureproof and will transform Campbelltown’s city centre into the economic, cultural and lifestyle capital of the Macarthur region, and connect the region to the world.

Work on city-shaping projects has already begun. We are currently working on the Campbelltown Billabong Parklands at Apex Park in Bradbury. We are undertaking detailed planning and investigation for a new city centre library, water retention through urban design, the transformation of the Leumeah precinct into a sports and entertainment hub and revitalisation of Queen Street into a vibrant high street and economic hub, and understanding the potential of the Bow Bowing Creek running through the spine of the city.
We are working in partnership with:
- Western Sydney University to deliver mutually beneficial projects such as a university campus in the Campbelltown City Centre and continue their commitment to the Campbelltown Sports and Health Centre of Excellence
- NSW and Australian Government to undertake a strategic business case to create a Civic, Community and Justice Precinct in Campbelltown
- Western Sydney University, South Western Sydney Local Health District, the Ingham Institute and University of NSW to develop a Macarthur Medical Research Centre.
