Draft plan for new South West Sydney precinct released
The draft plan for the Lowes Creek Maryland Precinct in South West Sydney, prepared by the Department of Planning and Environment in collaboration with Camden Council, has been released for community feedback.
The Precinct is located within the suburb of Bringelly and is around 8 km from the future Western Sydney Aerotropolis. It will provide up to 7,000 homes, made up of houses, terraces, townhouses and low-rise apartments, and the draft plan includes a new K-12 school near the local centre, 12 (six double) sporting fields, open space,and walking and cycling tracks.
The precinct contains three significant heritage sites: Maryland homestead, and Birling buildings and Birling homestead footings for which planning and consultation is underway .
In addition to 63 hectares of open space, there will be 60 hectares of riparian corridors and native vegetation along Lowes Creek, as well as several sites of significant Aboriginal heritage protected across the precinct.
The Western Sydney Special Infrastructure Contributions (SIC) will continue to apply to the area. The SIC outlines how essential community transport, education and health infrastructure will be provided.
The plan includes a proposed local road network that will link the Precinct to The Northern Road and ultimately areas to the north and south, as well as to the future train stations on the Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport rail Line.
The draft plan is on exhibition until 9 November 2018. To view the plan or make a submission, visit Lowes Creek Maryland.
