December 2022 update:

Consultation has closed on feedback for the early consultation for Westmead South, and submissions are now being reviewed. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback.


October 2022 consultation:

Council invites you to have your say on planning for the future of Westmead South.

Following the preparation of the Westmead Place Strategy by the NSW Government, we are undertaking planning work to shape the growth of Westmead South over the next 20 years.

A concept land use plan has been developed with a focus on sustainable growth and development, a range of housing close to jobs and public transport, and opportunities to preserve local character in the area.

We are seeking your feedback to understand the key priorities, aspirations and values of the local community. This will enable us to progress more detailed planning for Westmead South, which is anticipated to be provided to the community for further consultation in 2023. 

Following preparation of the draft Westmead South Master Plan, planning controls will be prepared to implement the growth envisioned through the planning undertaken for Westmead South.
