Why Liverpool?

Liverpool is the centre of South West Sydney, a region with a rapidly growing multicultural population. The Liverpool City Council area is one of the largest Local Government Areas in metropolitan Sydney. The City encompasses a total land area of 305 square kilometres and 42 suburbs, with a population of 223,304.

While Liverpool's rapid population growth itself creates momentum for new business opportunities, Council is mindful that significant challenges exist in ensuring that local employment growth keeps pace with population growth. The NSW Government's A Metropolis of Three Cities – The Greater Sydney Region Plan identifies Liverpool as a Strategic Centre with priorities being the commercial core and planning for long-term employment growth.

Liverpool's competitive advantages lie in the health and medical, distribution and logistics, professional services and advanced manufacturing services and provide an impetus for the creation of high quality jobs across the local government area. Liverpool's status as Sydney’s third CBD is also important in drawing a range of new retail and services jobs to the Liverpool city centre.

Liverpool City Council recognises the importance of small business in retaining and creating jobs in the local government area and is creating an environment where small business can capitalise on growth opportunities.

As economic development facilitators, we are supporting the growth of Liverpool as Sydney’s third CBD in brokering new jobs, career and education pathways by embracing innovation to create an 18 hour city.
