54 Bringelly Aerotropolis meeting Report plus related Articles
Sep 12, 2018 —
I attended the one held last Thursday on the 6th September from 4 to 7pm put on by the NSW Planning with various Government departments present.
I spoke to 2 people from Transport for NSW the first person knew about the Car Parking Crisis issue but didn't have any specific information on what was happening about it.
The second person I spoke to was a Strategic Planner with Transport for NSW and advised that NOTHING has been done regarding the commencement of Investigations since they were announced as part of the Budget a couple of months ago (I think that pretty well confirms my theory the $550K "Investigation" is a tax payer funded smokescreen to put the Car Parking Crisis issue on the backburner in the lead up to the NSW State Election to be held in March 2019).
In order to commence the Investigation a Briefing Document needs to be prepared to establish the scope of what needs to be investigated.
NO WORK HAS BEEN DONE TO PREPARE A BRIEF OR A SCOPING DOCUMENT FOR THE INVESTIGATION into the Car Parking Crisis at Edmondson Park or Leppington Stations.
I have sent an email to the Minister asking questions regarding what is happening in relation to the Car Parking Crisis. (I will advise you on this further in the next Update).

MACARTHUR ADVERTISER STORY
Sydney's Aerotropolis plans go on public display until October 12
Macarthur residents are invited to have their say on the first stage of plans for the Sydney’s new “Aerotropolis”.
Aerotropolis is the 11,200 hectare development of land surrounding the construction of the Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek.
The NSW Department of Planning and Environment’s executive director of western Sydney and Aerotropolis activation, Brett Whitworth, said the plans would be on public exhibition until October 12.
Mr Whitworth said the state government wanted to make sure the community’s voices were heard in the planning stages.
“The government wants to ensure the community and stakeholders are actively incorporated into planning so we can work together to build strong and resilient communities,” he said.
“The Aerotropolis provides us with a unique opportunity to work with councils, the Greater Sydney Commission and the people who live in these areas to plan for new communities.
“It allows us to ensure the infrastructure the community wants and needs will be delivered alongside homes and businesses.”
Mr Whitworth said the Aerotropolis would be a “catalyst for growth in western Sydney” with the potential to provide up to 60,000 homes and contribute to 200,000 new jobs.
“The Aerotropolis will be Sydney’s newest economic hub, helping to realise the vision of a 30-minute city, where people live close to jobs, schools, health and cultural amenities,” he said.
“Innovative planning for the land surrounding Sydney’s new 24-hour airport is critical to its success.
“Our department, working collaboratively with our city deal partners, wants to ensure the community has plenty of opportunity to help determine how we deliver a resilient and vibrant Aerotropolis.”
Greater Sydney Commission’s deputy chief commissioner Geoff Roberts said the Aerotropolis exhibition was “instrumental in realising the vision for greater Sydney”.
“This is a major step forward in providing certainty to the private sector relating to the early release precincts and their intended land use,” he said.
The first stage Land Use Infrastructure Implementation Plan for the Aerotropolis is on exhibition until October 12.
A community drop-in session where can people can talk to expert planners will be held at the Bringelly Community Centre on September 6 from 4pm to 7pm.
