New plans for jobs and housing

After advocacy from residents in the rural parts of our City, I am happy to announce that Council along with State agencies will be holding community consultation into future opportunities for jobs and homes in Horsley Park and Cecil Park.

Council has for the past few months been working with the Greater Sydney Commission and relevant State Government authorities regarding the opportunities to leverage off the future Western Sydney Airport and employment lands.

The airport is in our backyard and the proposed changes will have long term benefits for all of us in Fairfield City. It’s an opportunity for everyone, so make sure you have your say on how we can deliver affordable housing, create thousands of new jobs and provide better roads and transport links.

We want to hear from the community, that is why we are holding a public meeting at Mandavilla Function Centre on Monday, 12 November at 6.30pm for the community to have their say. We are also putting the plans on display on Council’s website and at our Administration Building from this Friday.

These plans take advantage of our unique position between the airport and Sydney’s second city of Parramatta. It’s potentially one of the biggest changes to our City since the introduction of rail in 1856. A new rail link would connect us to Sydney’s three cities and provide opportunities for education, recreation, and thousands of new jobs and homes.

We are advocating on behalf of our community to get the best outcomes for our City. This is a unique opportunity that could bring long term benefits for everyone that lives in our City. The planning starts now to deliver a brighter future for generations to come.
