NSW says it is planning to better connect homes, jobs and open space close to the seven train stations between Glenfield and Macarthur in south-west Sydney in order to provide more opportunities for people to live close to work.

“We have considered feedback from communities, agencies and industry groups to finalise the plans for six of the seven train station precincts,” says a NSW government spokesperson, who also added that, “We are also reviewing the draft Precinct Plan for Glenfield to show how it could develop into a new community.”

The plans for the Macquarie Fields, Ingleburn, Minto, Leumeah, Campbelltown and Macarthur precincts have now been finalised, with a number of new changes that have been added.

The key changes include:

  • Providing Council with flexibility to plan for parks and open space
  • Inclusion of new public plazas
  • Proposed relocation of the Hurlstone Agricultural High School and the reconfiguration of education facilities in the area.

The new planning proposals have been submitted to Campbelltown City Council, and once approved, rezoning will occur, a process that Campbelltown City Council will be responsible for implementing across the entire scope of the precinct plan.
