The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment has sought feedback on the proposed approach to the Mamre Road Precinct which has been introduced in the Western Sydney Employment Area.
On exhibition was a discussion paper about changes to State Environmental Planning Policy (Western Sydney Employment Area) 2009 (WSEA SEPP) that helps to facilitate industrial development in the Mamre Road Precinct.
The proposed changes to the WSEA SEPP and introduction of the Mamre Road Precinct structure plan will ensure that:
- The precinct becomes a warehousing industrial hub providing around 17,000 new jobs in Western Sydney;
- Surrounding rural residential areas are protected from industrial activities with buffers between homes and the industrial hub;
- Built and natural heritage are protected with the preservation of approximately 95 hectares of environmentally sensitive land, including Cumberland Plain Woodland;
- Over 50 hectares of open space, recreation areas, cycle and walking paths in the precinct, including alongside South Creek are included; and
- Critical transport corridors are preserved and potential opportunities for an intermodal terminal are explored.
