On 19 November 2018 the State Government released the interim Greater Macarthur 2040 and the Proposed Special Infrastructure Contribution for public feedback.
- Greater Macarthur 2040 is an interim land use and infrastructure implementation plan which sets a vision for the growth area. It sets out a 20-year vision for urban renewal along the rail corridor from Glenfield to Macarthur and land release areas from Menangle Park to Appin.
Land within Wollondilly is identified in two growth area precincts. These are ‘North Appin’ and ‘Appin’. These two precincts are indicated to deliver around 20,000 new homes.

- Proposed Special Infrastructure Contribution proposes a list of infrastructure items that need to be put in in place and paid for by developers. It sets out the proposed rates and infrastructure schedule for areas within the Greater Macarthur Growth Area.
The proposed SIC will cover contribute towards the cost of schools, regional roads, regional open spaces, emergency services, bus infrastructure, regional cycleways, regional pedestrian paths and health facilities.
