Pru Goward, NSW Planning Minister, unveiled plans last week for 11,000 new dwellings at Leppington and Cudgegong.
"Land releases at Leppington and around the future Cudgegong Road Station will unlock 11,000 new houses, along with the shops, cafes, parks, road upgrades and schools that will help make them homes," Ms Goward said.
"Our plan means future residents will live close to new shops, can choose from all sorts of different styles of homes, and have access to terrific new public transport services.
"This is yet more proof that this Government is planning for the future by ensuring growth areas have essential infrastructure before the people move in.”
Leppington Precinct will cover 655 hectares land currently zoned for rural land use, seeks to rezone the land in stages for urban development.
The current plan for Leppington Precinct, compromises of 7,000 dwellings for at least 23,500 residents, and a local centre covering 16,700 square metres of retail floor space.
Low density housing will occupy the majority of the precinct, with medium density housing around the local centre.
The plan also provides four primary schools, one high school, and 56 hectares of open space.
Ms Goward said further stages of the Leppington precinct will be released as the infrastructure to support new homes, such as electricity, water and local roads, comes online.
Cudgegong Road Station precinct, also known as Area 20 Precinct, is bounded by Schofields Road to the south, Windsor Road to the east and the ridge line to the west.
Area 20 Precinct is expected to accommodate 4,400 dwellings for around 11,250 residents.
Both proposals are on public exhibition until 19th December.
