Fairfield Rural Lands Urban Investigation Area
Draft Structure Plan Options

Council at its meeting on 30 October 2018 endorsed the public exhibition of an Urban Capability Assessment and draft Structure Plan Options for the Fairfield Rural Lands Urban Investigation Area covering the suburbs of Horsley Park and Cecil Park.

The draft Structure Plan Options do not rezone land.  They will help to prepare a planning proposal to rezone land which will be publicly exhibited. In the first half of 2019 a report will be referred to Council on both the results of public exhibition period and the preferred Structure Plan. 

The Urban Capability Assessment and draft Structure Plan Options is now on public exhibition until Friday 8 February 2019.

Additional Structure Plan Options D and E

Council at its meeting of the 11 December 2018 took on board feedback from residents and landowners in Horsley Park and Cecil Park and resolved to release two additional Structure Plan Options (D and E ) for the Fairfield Rural Lands that:

  • Remove the proposed north-south Boulevard that are present in Options A to C and instead largely utilise the existing road network already servicing the area.
  • Allow for low density one acre (4,000m2) residential lots within the area affected by aircraft noise from the future Western Sydney Airport.  This measure is subject to further approval from the State and Federal Governments, with employment lands located only within the northern part of Horsley Park.

Option E differs from Option D as it includes greater density around a proposed Cecil Park town centre should a new rail link and station be built from Parramatta to the new Western Sydney Airport.

Information in relation to Options D and E will be sent out to all landowners in Horsley Park and Cecil Park, who will be given the opportunity to make a further submission to Council on the new Options.
