Following extensive community consultation the NSW Government has announced changes to the proposed Western Sydney Corridors that plan for the unprecedented growth of Western Sydney over the next 20 years.
Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies, said the changes will reduce the total number of properties impacted from 1247 to 825 and halve the number of residential dwellings impacted from 399 to 200.
“The Government will not acquire the remaining corridors until further refinements of the alignment are considered with affected property owners and communities,” Mrs Davies said.
“This outcome will further reduce the impact of the corridors on local residents, and I want to thank everyone who participated in consultation.”
“We have worked hard to strike the balance and reduce the impact, while also ensuring we plan to future-proof Western Sydney’s infrastructure needs for decades to come, as well as preparing Western Sydney Airport for rail.”
The NSW Government has also announced an allocation of $100 million over two years to undertake initial property acquisitions for those who want to sell their land following the rezoning process.
Any requested acquisition of rezoned properties would be the under the recently revised and improved land acquisition process overseen by the Centre for Property Acquisition.
