Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan (CPCP)

The Cumberland Plain Conservation Plan (the CPCP) facilitates growth in Western Sydney to 2056 and beyond, and delivers important development and biodiversity outcomes.

The CPCP is one of the largest strategic conservation plans to be undertaken in Australia and will protect large areas of significant habitat for threatened plants and animals, including koala population, while supporting the delivery of housing, jobs and infrastructure.

The CPCP will facilitate delivery of up to 73,000 homes planned for the Western Parkland City by providing the necessary NSW and Federal biodiversity approvals across around 11,000 hectares of land including the Western Sydney Aerotropolis to enable development of new housing and infrastructure.
