West Schofields is a new precinct planned for Sydney’s North West Growth Area. It is approximately 5 kilometres from Schofields town centre and 10 kilometres from Blacktown CBD. The Department of Planning and Environment, in collaboration with Blacktown City Council, has prepared the draft West Schofields masterplan. This plan will guide the future rezoning and development of this new precinct from the ground up. West Schofields was originally released in two stages. The southern half of the precinct was released in 2016 and the northern half was released in May 2017. The draft masterplan covers both parts of the precinct. The draft plan is being exhibited for community feedback until 28 September 2018. The masterplan and accompanying reports can be viewed at locations including Blacktown City Council, and on the Department’s website.
