Council has now received feedback from the NSW Greater Sydney Commission (GSC) and State agencies that can be viewed under the following link:

GSC and State Agencies Comments 

The feedback from the GSC and State agencies highlights the need for further detailed investigations into a range of infrastructure, environmental and transport planning issues relevant to the UIA. 


The work required to address the issues raised by the GSC and State agencies will be coordinated by a steering committee chaired by the GSC.  It will also require considerable financial resources.  In this regard, Council is seeking funding support from the State Government through the steering committee to further progress structure and master planning for the UIA.


Council will continue to advocate to the Federal and State governments for 1-acre subdivision to be permissible in the area of Horsley Park affected by the 20-25 Aircraft Noise Exposure Contour (ANEC) associated with the Western Sydney Airport. 


Council will also keep the community updated on further progress (including the timing of the next stages) in the structure and master planning as information becomes available.


Please contact Council’s Strategic Planning Team on 9725 0159 if you would like to discuss any of the above further.
