The countdown is on, not only for Christmas but some exciting changes set to bring new life to our city.
Fairfield City Centre will soon see design excellence landmark signature buildings commence in the near future.
There are 12 urban designed and planned major sites ranging from 2500sqm to 26,000sqm within the Fairfield CBD currently on exhibition.
On a broader scale The Greater Sydney Commission’s recently released draft plan is also available to the public. This big picture approach co-ordinates state and local government long-term metropolitan planning for Greater Sydney. The plans will make Greater Sydney more liveable, productive, sustainable and make the most of future opportunities and challenges.
The commission sees Greater Sydney’s future as a metropolis of three unique but connected cities; a Western Parkland City west of the M7, a Central River City with Greater Parramatta at its heart and an Eastern Harbour City. With the cities well connected by transport links and infrastructure, more people will live within 30 minutes of their jobs and have easier access to schools, hospitals and services.
In September 2017 the West and South West districts were merged to better facilitate planning around the Western Sydney Airport, creating the Western Sydney district presenting substantial opportunities for our City.
