Economic Development Unit

The overarching strategic planning policy 'A Plan for Growing Sydney' by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment guides development in Greater Sydney over the next 20 years. Liverpool is identified as a Strategic Centre in the Plan with a role to provide a hub for jobs and services in South West Sydney.

The development of the health and education precinct in the Liverpool City Centre will play a critical role in underpinning growth. The Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek will also be a catalyst in this expansion.

The Economic Development Unit is committed to working with new and existing businesses and other stakeholders to provide an environment that supports sustainable economic growth and business opportunities throughout the City of Liverpool.

This Unit is responsible for facilitating the process of developing and implementing strategic policies, projects and actions to guide the future economic prosperity of the city through the attraction, growth and support of businesses in the city. Council's decision-making is informed by the latest economic and demographic information.

The Economic Development Unit implements the Economic Development Strategy to guide the economic development of the city and provide stronger support to key industry sectors, stakeholders and local businesses.
