UDIA applauds progress as Bradfield City Centre kicks off construction
UDIA applauds the announcement today by Premier Dominic Perrottet on the progress made in delivering the new city of Bradfield City Centre. This is a significant undertaking by Western Parkland City Authority to get approval for this initial building which will provide up to 150 construction jobs and 60 new operational jobs once it opens in late 2023.
UDIA’s Ready for Take Off advocacy strategy, prepared in 2019, sets out a plan for the key approvals and project steps needed to ensure that development is completed and the homes and jobs required are ready for when the planes take off in 2026.
“While it is great to see the planning approval for the first building in the Bradfield City Centre project, we recognise that a number of precinct-wide solutions still needed to be resolved to achieve the planning vision,” said Steve Mann, CEO, UDIA NSW.
“There has been significant progress with 10 major civil infrastructure projects and key planning policies. As we draw to the close of 2022, all the planning work needs to be completed and we need to move to infrastructure lead-in and subdivision works which would see an Aerotropolis city emerging as people land at the new Western Sydney airport in 2026,” said Mr Mann.
UDIA calls on the NSW Government to finalise the precinct-wide Sydney Water storm-water strategy, further invest in the road network and complete the Advanced Water Recycling Facility as soon as possible, to ensure this building and future development proposals can be delivered and operate to their highest and best potential.
“Resolving these issues will provide developer confidence to invest in the Aerotropolis as it emerges as the principal CBD in South West Sydney,” Mr Mann added.
