The Western Sydney Airport Plan outlines the approach to Western Sydney Airport’s design and development.
The Hon Paul Fletcher MP, Minister for Urban Infrastructure, determined the Western Sydney Airport Plan which provides the authorisation for Stage 1 of the airport (a single runway facility capable of handling up to 10 million passengers per year).
The plan includes the concept design, indicative airport layout and zoning, air traffic forecasts and noise contours for the initial and longer-term airport development. More than 40 strict environmental conditions, which must be complied with, have been placed on the development of the airport. These are included in the Airport Plan.
Western City and Aerotropolis Authority
The NSW and Australian Governments established a joint Western City and Aerotropolis Authority (WCAA) in 2018 to facilitate the design and delivery of the Western Sydney Aerotropolis. The WCAA, signed under the Western Sydney City Deal which included all three tiers of government, including Campbelltown City Council, will oversee the delivery of the metropolitan centre of the Aerotropolis on 114 hectares of Australian Government land at Bringelly.
The Aerotropolis will be a catalyst in driving employment across the Western Parkland City, which Campbelltown is included in, and will create over 200,000 jobs over the next 20 years. Primed to be a global employment centre that attracts international investment opportunities, the Aerotropolis will enhance the liveability for all the residents of the Western Parkland City by delivering new jobs and providing education opportunities.
The WCAA is leading the master planning of the delivery of the Aerotropolis and will undertake key strategic planning in collaboration with the councils of the Western Parkland City.
