The Department of Planning and Environment has approved a distribution and industrial facility at the Horsley Drive Business Park.

The warehouse, distribution and light industrial facility will be developed over two stages, injecting more than $12 million into the economy and create 300 construction jobs and around 100 full time jobs once constructed.

The Business Park is currently being developed by Frasers Property and is located at the corner of The Horsley Drive and Cowpasture Road in Wetherill Park.

Frasers Property will need to prepare construction and traffic management plans.

Anthea Sargeant, Executive Director of Key Sites and Industry Assessments, said the decision was made following careful consideration of feedback from the community.

“Community consultation is an important part of the assessment process,” she said.

The facility is one of Western Sydney Parklands Trust’s identified business hubs to provide more jobs for Western Sydney locals and generate $10 million per year to improve the Parklands over the next decade.

“By activating vacant land with low recreational and ecological value, Western Sydney Parklands Trust is generating funds to develop and manage new recreation facilities, expand the 1,000 hectare biodiversity corridor and create more cycling and walking tracks for the community to enjoy,” Suellen Fitzgerald, Executive Director of Western Sydney Parklands Trust, said.
