South West Growth Area

a5 b c d

The South West Growth Area (SWGA) consists of approximately 17,000ha of greenfield land identified by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) for future urban development.  The SWGA currently comprises of 16 precincts across the Camden, Campbelltown and Liverpool Local Government Areas (LGA). 

The SWGA is established by the State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) 2006 (Growth Centres SEPP) that is designed to streamline the land release process for the delivery of new communities, homes, employment areas, health and education facilities, supported through the provision of adequate infrastructure within greenfield areas.

Leppington Town Centre

TBD

 Under Review Council (formerly DPIE)

Leppington Town Centre is located within the South West Growth Area. The precinct spans over two Local Government Areas (LGAs), Liverpool City Council to the north of Bringelly Road and Camden Council to the South.

The land was originally rezoned for urban development in 2013, with the Western Sydney airport announced in 2014 and the Leppington train station opening in 2015.

DPIE commenced a review of Leppington Town Centre in 2017. The review investigates a new vision for the town centre, with altered land use controls.

In November 2019, DPIE announced a new approach to planning, handing the lead of the review to Camden and Liverpool Councils. Council has since consulted with Leppington landowners and completed a number of technical studies and is preparing a formal report to Council, the next significant milestone in the review.

Due to the rezoning of Leppington Precinct Stages 2 and 5, your land may be identified for future acquisition. This is to enable Council to provide the necessary infrastructure and services for the growing community. Finding out your property needs to be acquired can often be a confusing and challenging time for landowners. The below information is available to assist landowners who are affected by the rezoning in the Leppington Precinct.
