The Draft Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan

Public exhibition of the Draft Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan (the Plan) has been extended to Friday 9 October 2020.


The NSW Government has prepared the Plan to meet the future needs of people and biodiversity in Western Sydney and will help protect and conserve threatened plants and animals. The Plan will help create the Western Parkland City by supporting the delivery of housing, jobs and infrastructure while protecting important biodiversity in Western Sydney.


The Plan will streamline biodiversity approvals under NSW and Commonwealth legislation reducing development costs and timeframes for industry.
