Greater Macarthur was declared a growth area by the NSW Government on 6 December 2019. An amendment was made to the State Environmental Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) (2006) to identify the Greater Macarthur Growth Area which incorporates Glenfield to Macarthur as urban renewal precincts and Appin as a land release precinct.
The draft Greater Macarthur 2040: an interim plan for the Greater Macarthur Growth Area outlines the high level vision and principles for GM and includes a structure plan.
The Greater Macarthur 2040 Update brochure was provided by the Department of Planning and Environment in December 2021 which explains what has happened so far, indicative Koala corridors and Steps to finalise Greater Macarthur 2040.
This process is currently on track to be finalised mid 2022 with the following steps being undertaken concurrently with relevant stakeholders:
