Council's City Economy Team

The overarching strategic policy A Metropolis of Three Cities 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 City Economy Unit is committed to working with businesses and other stakeholders to provide an environment that supports sustainable economic growth and business opportunities.

The team 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 City Economy Unit implements the Economic Development Strategy to guide the economic development of the city.
