Parklands plan creates jobs

WESTERN Sydney Parklands is on track to create 8800 jobs by 2030, Environment Minister Robyn Parker recently announced. The jobs will be created by proposed business hubs, as well as the Wet 'n' Wild theme park. Ms Parker said the draft plan of management proposed three business hubs to be located within the Fairfield, Liverpool and Blacktown local government areas and two per cent of the parklands would be allocated for the proposed business hubs, after it was identified as having the least ecological and recreation value. "The revenue generated from the long-term leases on the sites, mostly located on the fringe of the parklands adjacent to motorways and major arterial roads, will fund the remaining 98 per cent of the parklands."
