Deloitte has worked with business and government to create a blueprint for the economic transformation of Western Sydney: a vision that unites the multiple stakeholder perspectives on how to transform and restructure the region, in order to create 200,000 great new jobs by 2020.

Shaping Future Cities: Designing Western Sydney outlines how best to enable people to work, live and play in the Western Sydney area, rather than commuting to the Sydney CBD. This, in turn, will encourage residents to build strong local communities, which will create more jobs and a greater sense of local pride and prosperity.

Western Sydney Aerotropolis

Western Sydney Airport will be a game-changer for the region. Strategic planning for the greenfield land around the airport will unlock opportunities to deliver new jobs and homes supported by key infrastructure in the heart of Western Sydney, bringing us another step closer to realising a 30-minute city.

The Department of Planning and Environment has been working with all levels of government through the Planning Partnership to draft the Stage 1 Land Use and Infrastructure Implementation Plan (Stage 1 Plan) for the Aerotropolis. The Stage 1 Plan provides an overview of proposed land uses and the sequence of development that will deliver Sydney's newest economic hub.
