The aim of this Policy is to put in place planning controls that will enable the Western Sydney Parklands Trust to develop the Western Parklands into a multi-use urban parkland for the region of western Sydney by:(a) allowing for a diverse range of recreational, entertainment and tourist facilities in the Western Parklands, and (b) allowing for a range of commercial, retail, infrastructure and other uses consistent with the Metropolitan Strategy, which will deliver beneficial social and economic outcomes to western Sydney, and (c) continuing to allow for and facilitate the location of government infrastructure and service facilities in the Western Parklands, and (d) protecting and enhancing the natural systems of the Western Parklands, including flora and fauna species and communities and riparian corridors, and (e) protecting and enhancing the cultural and historical heritage of the Western Parklands, and (f) maintaining the rural character of parts of the Western Parklands by allowing sustainable extensive agriculture, horticulture, forestry and the like, and (g) facilitating public access to, and use and enjoyment of, the Western parklands, and (h) facilitating use of the Western Parklands to meet a range of community needs and interests, including those that promote health and well-being in the community, and (i) encouraging the use of the Western Parklands for education and research purposes, including accommodation and other facilities to support those purposes, and (j) allowing for interim uses on private land in the Western Parklands if such uses do not adversely affect the establishment of the Western Parklands or the ability of the Trust to carry out its functions as set out in section 12 of the Western Sydney Parklands Act 2006, and (k) ensuring that development of the Western Parklands is undertaken in an ecologically sustainable way.

This spatial dataset reflects the current planning legislation in NSW in particular the maps and legislation published on the NSW legislation website ( The data production usually occurs in conjunction with the development of the Environmental Planning Instrument (EPI) it is connected to. Original data inputs are produced by Local Government or the Department according to map and data standards developed by the Department and published externally via the website. These data inputs are checked by data and cartographic staff as well as planning staff internally against the map and data standards as well as for accurate content. Once the planning instrument is notified, the input data will be incorporated into the relevant EPI datasets. The quality management processes involved in the data production to this point are routinely screened by internal and external auditors for certification under ISO 9001 - Quality Management Systems. At this point the various datasets are then combined into a new normalised data schema to suit the requirements of the online Planning Viewer. This occurs via various automated ETL processes. Although every care is taken in ETL processes to maintain accuracy sometimes differences between inputs and final normalised data can occur.
