Prestons Employment Lands Precinct

Liverpool City Council has adopted a one job per household benchmark to guide development within the Liverpool local government area to help ensure the balanced provision of employment in line with residential development. Prestons Employment Lands Precinct is a prime location for employment generation within a suitable and highly connected location. 

The Prestons Employment Lands Precinct is bound by Hoxton Park Road to the north, Cabramatta Creek to the west, Kurrajong Road to the south, and Wonga Road to the east. The subject land is zoned principally for industrial or other business purposes under the Liverpool Local Environmental Plan 2008.

The precinct is strategically located within Sydney’s orbital motorway network, with the M7/Bernera Road interchange being located within the area. The site has direct links via the M7 to the Sydney City Centre, Port Botany, and Sydney Airport, other employment areas within the greater metropolitan region and interstate freeways. The site also benefits from the Liverpool to Parramatta T-Way being located along the northern perimeter of the precinct, which makes access easier from workers who live outside of the area. Notable among the developments in this area are Aldi Distribution Centre, Mainfreight Facility, Biz Holdings, Sydney Water and Endeavour Energy Training Facility. 

Planning controls

The principal planning controls for the Prestons Employment Lands Precinct are the Liverpool Local Environmental Plan 2008 and the Liverpool Development Control Plan 2008 Part 7 Industrial Areas, which can be found at Liverpool’s Planning Controls

There are areas of the Prestons Employment Lands Precinct in close proximity to existing zoned residential land. Council has applied controls to ensure an adequate transition between industrial development and the residential areas. These include requirements for setbacks, access, site circulation, noise amelioration, architectural elements and hours of operation.
