State Agencies

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

Greater Sydney Commission and State Agencies Comments 

The feedback from the Greater Sydney Commission and State agencies highlights the need for further detailed investigations into a range of infrastructure, environmental and transport planning issues relevant to the Urban Investigation Area. 

The work required to address the issues raised by the Greater Sydney Commission and State agencies will be coordinated by a steering committee chaired by the Greater Sydney Commission.  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 Urban Investigation Area.

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.

Rural Area - Land Use Planning Issues

The Rural areas (Horsley Park & Cecil Park) of Fairfield have been subject to growing pressures as a result of the State Government's planning for expansion of the Western Sydney Employment Lands (including proposed arterial roads through the area) and by the Federal Government's decision to proceed with Sydney's second airport at Badgerys Creek.

Council has engaged consultants to undertake a land capability study that responds to the designation of the Fairfield Rural Lands as an Urban Investigation Area under the Greater Sydney Region Plan and the Western City District Plan, released by the Greater Sydney Commission in 2018. Proposals consisting of various options for future development have been identified. 

The options for future development of the Fairfield Rural Lands Urban Investigation Area covering the suburbs of Horsley Park and Cecil Park were on public exhibition from Friday 9 November 2018 to Friday 8 February 2019.

The Urban Capability Assessment and three draft Structure Plan Options can be viewed on the next page.
