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 NSW Government has identified Greater Macarthur as a state-led strategic planning project that will involve early investigation and high level planning. This will be led by the NSW Government to inform future rezoning processes.
The Minister has committed to planning the growth area in collaboration with Wollondilly and Campbelltown Council. The declaration as a growth area seeks to spur on investment in education, jobs, recreation and housing while conserving key koala habitats.
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:
